Windy conditions and heavy undergrowth turned a brush fire on the American River bike trail into a two-alarm blaze that crews managed to keep from spreading to nearby apartment buildings and offices.
Firefighters responded about 3:55 p.m. to the blaze on the bike trail near the Campus Commons Golf Course, Sacramento Fire Department officials said in a news release Saturday night.
Sacramento County park rangers temporarily closed the bike trail at the fire site.
No firefighters were reported injured,and the cause has not been determined, officials said.
