    This happened in Placer County off of Baseline Road. Yes, this is a grass fire, which seems harmless. But the reason for large reaction is the massive line of homes and elementary school less than a mile away that can't be seen through the smoke. This area is a wind tunnel and these grass fires spread fast. Great job to the firefighters for handling this!!

    Y are they using aircraft firefighting to fight level grass fire. What a wast of taxpayers money.

    The fire dept there are a joke much of the time, first of all those fire trucks that cost 100s of thousands are worthless most of the time, buy water trucks like dirt race tracks and construction companies use. I lived through and seen many fire in Ca, I have watched the useless fire trucks sit there as they hold little water and cannot work in open areas, one time there were many fire trucks just sitting there, a guy in a water truck drove into the area on fire, turned on the sprayers and put the fire out, upon leaving he and others told the fireman to get rid of their useless trucks, you can buy dozens of water trucks for the price of 1 fire truck, meaning you can attack the fire in 12 places at once, or have a truck sitting on the sidelines.

    Too bad it didn't continue thru Sacramento. The state really needs a fresh start.
