Fire burns two acres near South Course

| Filed under

About two acres of brush burned in a blaze that broke out about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in a dry, grassy area between the Cosumnes River and Holes 1 and 2 of the South Course.  Golfers and spectators watched from cart paths and the course as Metro Fire Copter 2 dropped water on the flames and crews from Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District and Cal Fire brought the fire under control. The fire did not involve the golf course or nearby homes.  Sac Metro Battalion 14 Chief Chris Siler said at the scene that the cause of the fire hadn't been determined, but heavy brush and the amount of people and activity in the area made for "a lot of possibilities."

Fire does minor damage to home on Clementia Circle

Fire

Firefighters from Stations 58 and 59 responded around 10 p.m. Tuesday to a fire that did minor damage to a home on Clementia Circle.  Chief Charles Jenkins of Sac Metro Fire said the fire started when rags being used for deck staining caught fire spontaneously at the side of the house.  By the time firefighters arrived, Jenkins said, neighbors had the fire nearly under control.  A garage wall was damaged in the blaze, he said.  He cautioned Murietans to dispose of oily rags carefully, as there's always a risk of spontaneous combustion.  (There are tips on handling them here.) Another safety concern this time of year is the disposal of fireplace ashes.  Always place them in a metal container with a tight-fitting lid far away from the house, as embers can continue to burn for days.
