Another Parkway Fire

This makes 12 since July 29th, by my count, in the homeless illegal camping area, as reported by Channel 3 this morning.

An excerpt.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —A grass fire broke out Monday near a homeless encampment along the American River near Discovery Park.

Sacramento and Metro fire crews responded to the fire that broke out about 9:30 a.m.

A Metro Fire helicopter was seen doing multiple water drops to put out flames and keep trees from toppling on firefighters.
