A firefighter at River Bend Park puts out hot spots after a grass fire flares up


A grass fire at a popular park along the American River Trail has flared up again Wednesday morning, closing some trails.

After catching fire overnight, firefighters were able to get control of the fire burning in River Bend Park. However, a few hours later, around 10 a.m., the dry grass caught fire and the flames started spreading again.

Multiple agencies were called and with about 23 firefighting units the growing fire was contained again.

A helicopter is being used to keep an eye on the fire line to make sure it doesn’t spread again with Wednesday’s winds.
