Rocklin, California – A grass fire near Thunder Valley Casino burns 169 acres
A fast moving fire that broke out on Tuesday the 17th of May, south of Lincoln near the Thunder Valley Casino has burned 169 acres. While firefighters from throughout Placer County and Sacramento County responded, the fire is reported to be 80% contained as a result of high temperatures, winds and dry brush contributing to its spread. A commercial plumbing supply storage area and three trucks were scorched, but fortunately, no fatalities have been reported. Authorities are still unsure as to what might have caused the fire in the first place.
