According to Sacramento Metro Fire, no structures have been damaged and no injuries have been reported.
Officials say firefighters were out in the area earlier in the day doing a controlled burn, but it’s unclear if that is what sparked the uncontrolled grass fire that went on to burn 50 acres.
The flames have been mostly controlled. Firefighters remain at the scene for mop-up work.
