Parkway Fires, Part II

Another story with video of yesterday’s Parkway fires, from Channel Three News.

An excerpt.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —Sacramento Fire crews battled multiple fires Tuesday along the American River Parkway.

The latest grass fire flared up about 3 p.m. Tuesday near Carlson and Cadillac drives, not far from Cal Expo.

The fire was blamed for the death of a dog that was tied to a tree in the area, Sacramento Fire officials said.

Crews battled at least three other grass fires along the American River Parkway in addition to the blaze near Cadillac Drive. Those three fires all ignited during a four-hour span.

At about 9:45 a.m., another grass fire started along Highway 160 near the Costco.

That fire burned about 5 acres, Sacramento Fire officials said.
