SUISUN CITY — Firefighters have been on the scene of a 2,500-acre grass hearth apparently sparked by a big-rig blaze on Thursday afternoon, authorities mentioned.
Simply after 12 p.m., the California Freeway Patrol obtained studies of a fireplace on Freeway 12 at Nurse Slough, and realized Solano County firefighters have been responding to a industrial trailer that had caught hearth.
As of three p.m., CalFire officers estimated the hearth’s dimension at 2,500 acres, however the company had not dedicated assets to it because it was on county land.
By 3:30pm, firefighters have been working flames burning south away from the freeway towards Grizzly Island Street. Suisun Fireplace Safety District officers estimated hearth containment at 60 p.c at the moment.
There have been no studies of evacuation orders, threatened buildings or accidents.
CHP officers briefly closed eastbound freeway lanes at Walters Street and westbound lanes at Denverton Street in unincorporated Solano County.
