One structure and several vehicles lost in north Sacramento fire

OTHER LATEST NEWS WE WANT TO HAVE. IT’S OUTSIDE OF SACRAMENTO TONIGHT, WHERE CREWS HAD TO WORK QUICKLY TO STOPP THIS FIRE NEAR SOME BUSINESSES AND HOUSES, AND KCRA 3 WAS RIGHT THERE AS THE FLAMES SPREAD WHILE THE NEIGHBORS COULD DO NOTHING FURTHER JUST LOOK. IT’S FRIGHTENING. YEAH. I mean, the houses, the buildings, it’s scary. THIS IS VERY SCARY. I mean, just think about how much you lose in a fire. They were pretty shaken up. And this is what the fire looked like from downtown Sacramento earlier this evening. YOU CAN SEE THIS LARGE CLOUD OF SMOKE DRIFTING OVER A WIDE AREA. It started as a vegetation fire on Santa Ana Avenue, between Dry Creek Road and Raley Boulevard, before spreading to nearby vehicles and destroying at least one structure. KCRA 3’s Lee Anne Denyer joins us live from the scene now so we can see, Leanne, there’s definitely some damage behind you. Oh, ABSOLUTELY. And I believe that even in the dark, you should be able to see that the firefighters are still there, keeping an eye on the hot spots and mopping up that fire. SACRAMENTO FIRE TOLD US IT WAS A CHALLENGE FOR THEM. WE HAVE A VIDEO THAT WE WANT TO SHOW YOU SOON. THIS VIDEO SHOWS A SACRAMENTO METRO FIRE HELICOPTER ATTENDING THE BAG FIRE AS THIS RESPONSE. I drop water on this burning house. YOU CAN JUST SEE THESE FLAMES AND ALL THIS SMOKE. THE FIRE HYDRANTS ARE ALSO QUITE FAR AWAY, WE ARE TOLD, WHICH FURTHER COMPLICATES THIS INTERVENTION FOR THE FIREFIGHTERS. A SACRAMENTO FIRE SPOKESPERSON SAYS ABOUT 730 CREWS WERE DISPATCHED TO WHAT WAS THEN JUST A GRASS FIRE, BUT IT QUICKLY BECAME A STRUCTURE FIRE AND THEN BURNED SOME 15 TO 20 VEHICLES THAT ARE FOUND ON THIS PROPERTY. FIRE CREWS SAY THAT DESPITE ALL THESE OBSTACLES, THEY WERE ABLE TO SAVE NEARBY PROPERTIES. IT’S A VERY LARGE AREA AND SO COMPLEX WITH VEHICLE FIRES, A STRUCTURE FIRE, AND A VEGETABLE FIRE TRYING TO RECONCILE ALL OF THESE RESOURCES AND THEIR PLACE WAS QUITE DIFFICULT AT THE START. Once that was taken care of, we took care of it and saved a lot of property around here. I WANT TO SHOW YOU ANOTHER VIEW OF THIS ONE. NOW, JUST TO REALLY SHOW YOU THE SCOPE, HERE ARE PICTURES YOU KNOW FROM ABOVE, FROM A HELICOPTER, SHOWING YOU THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ANSWER. YOU CAN JUST SEE THE DAMAGE THAT THE FIRE WAS BURNING ABOUT FIVE ACRES. AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AROUND THIS AREA TOLD US IT WAS IT WAS. IT WAS VERY SCARY. SCARY AS HELL. I was here, Rio Linda and Elkhorn. I SEE THE FUMES. That’s my trailer right there and I’m working on it. And I come back here and this whole back section is completely engulfed. All I can do is a garden hose to keep it from jumping over and burning everything in here. I started smelling smoke and then all the smoke detectors started going off. THE WIND WAS ACTUALLY BLOWING DIRECTLY INTO OUR BACK DOOR, SO IT FILLED OUR HOUSE MOSTLY WITH SMOKE. And then, I don’t know, panic set in. And right now we hear these firefighters still working. I don’t know if you hear these clicks at home. SOME NOISE JUST BEHIND US, BUT STILL YOU CAN SEE THE DAMAGE FOR YOURSELF. FORTUNATELY, OFFICIALS TELL US NO ONE WAS HURT IN ANY OF THIS. But again, just to recap, it started as a vegetation fire that quickly spread to a structure, and then several vehicles were burned as well. So overall, a very complicated response for the firefighters here tonight. WE’RE TOLD IN SACRAMENTO, LEE ANNE DENYER KCRA THREE NEWS ONE COMPLICATED
