Wind Fuels Vegetation Fire in Rancho Cordova

RANCHO CORDOVA — Firefighters with the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District expected to be at the scene of a vegetation fire throughout Sunday night into Monday in Rancho Cordova.

The Oregon St. Fire spread to 215 acres near Aerojet Rocketdyne property along Old White Rock Road and Oregon Street.

It was contained just after noon Monday.

Early on Metro Fire believed the fire had “limited growth potential.”  At one point around 6 p.m., officials reported the progress of the fire had been stopped. However, due to the wind, the flames picked back up.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
