WINTERS (CBS13) – Firefighters are on the scene of a four-alarm fire that can be seen for miles in rural Yolo County.
The fire is burning at Hay Kingdom, off of Highway 505 in Winters. It started just before 11 p.m. Thursday, and is so big and would take so much water to extinguish that firefighters are going to let it burn itself out, which could take days, firefighters say.READ MORE: Sacramento Kings To Require COVID-19 Vaccine For Full And Part-Time Employees
“It’s a massive amount of fire. You think what you burn in your fireplace and multiply it by 1,000. It’s a hot fire, a very smoky fire. It’s difficult to try to extinguish,” said Vacaville Fire Dept. Chief Doug Rogers.
The fire has burned 10 acres of hay and structures and equipment. Damage from the fire is estimated at $6 million.READ MORE: River Fire Grows To 2,400 Acres; Zero Containment Reported
