Fire Along American River Parkway Near Cal Expo

The Sacramento Bee is reporting that approximately 176 acres fire burned yesterday afternoon along the American River Bike Trail in Sacramento near Cal Expo.  For those who view our website from outside of Sacramento, Cal Expo is generally North/Northwest of the H Street Bridge that crosses the American River.

Parts of the bike trail were closed as fire vehicles accessed the area using the paved bike trail as fire crews battled the fire.  Anyone living in western sections of Arden Arcade or East/North Sacramento could see the flames and smoke.  Fire crews included a helicopter providing overhead fire fighting support.
