Grass fire spreads to North Highlands tow yard, burns cars (CA)


Recommended Posts



A grass fire that ignited early Wednesday morning spread to a tow yard in North Highlands, where more than two dozen cars caught fire, authorities say.


The fire started around 2:30 a.m. in the area of North Avenue near Interstate 80 and Roseville Road, fire officials said.


The way some of the salvaged cars in the yard are stored and stacked made fighting the fire a challenge. Vehicles had to be separated one by one so crews could make sure the fire was completely put out.


"Once it hit the tow yard, we had multiple cars stacked on top of each other with very limited access. So we had a real hard time getting (hand lines) in," said Brett Steppig with the Sacramento Fire Department. "Once we did get the hand lines in there we were able to put the fire out."


It's not yet clear how the fire started.
