Several acres of grass and trees burned Thursday morning near Cal Expo.

Around 1 a.m., Sacramento City firefighters were called to the Cal Expo area of the American River Parkway trail. Several acres were burning between the river and the trail.

There are a few homeless camps in that area, however firefighters are not commenting on how Thursday’s fire started.

Extra crews were needed to control the fire before it got into thicker timber and grasses. It took a few hours for firefighters to get it completely out.
