Palm Trees Catch Fire In Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS) — Two groves of palm trees caught fire this morning.

One grove is located at a residential area at 11th and X Streets in Sacramento. Crews responded to that fire around 4 a.m. and found four trees on fire. They were able to quickly put them out. No homes were threatened.

The second fire was a Pradera Mesa in South Sacramento around 4:30.

“It’s not too often that they just kind of burst into flames in the middle of the night by themselves,” said Sacramento Metro Battalion Chief John Williams.

Both of the fires are believed to be intentionally set.

    The only explanation is somebody has a arm and threw something up there to catch fire with. It doesn’t just happen by nature. The weather is too cold for that.
