No homes burned in the July 4 fire, but smoke from the 160-acre blaze postponed a Sacramento Republic FC match and nearly meant the cancellation of the Cal Expo fireworks show.
Since the fair opened 12 days ago, 11 cars have had their catalytic converters stolen. Vehicles sitting higher off the ground have been targeted, as it’s easier for thieves to get underneath and out quickly.
The fire broke out this afternoon and did not damage any structures. But when things seemed to be quieting down in the battle against the 30-acre blaze, flames got into live power lines, causing them to arc.
Cal Expo officials say they did what needed to be done on Friday to make sure everyone could exit safely. But many parkgoers say they would have like things to be handled differently.
Even with smoke settling around Cal Expo from the afternoon fire, families we spoke to say they didn’t want to miss the show.
People are being allowed inside of Cal Expo to watch tonight’s fireworks display, after a fire burned dangerously close to the park.
Cal Expo organizers say they are expecting 10,000 people to fill up the grandstands at the race track tonight.
Sacramento Fire Department investigators are looking into what caused a fire that burned along the American River Bike Trail near Cal Expo overnight.
