Solano County Fire Blamed For Smoky Conditions Over Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A strong smell of smoke and hazy skies over the Sacramento area on Monday night were blamed on a Solano County fire.

Smoke from the Joice Fire near the Grizzly Island Wildlife Area in Solano County has drifted over to Sacramento via the Delta breeze, according to the Suisun Fire Protection District. Some 20 acres of marshland burned but the fire was 100 percent contained Monday night.

Sacramento fire dispatchers were inundated with 911 calls reporting smoke in the area Monday night. The air quality in several parts of the region also registered as unhealthy. Tuesday is another Spare The Air day, when unhealthy air conditions are expected.

Five to 10 acres of marshland were reportedly burning on Grizzly Island. That’s in addition to wildfires burning in Lake County and in the Plumas National Forest.
