A team of about 130 firefighters fought their way through flames touching the sky while the night went by in their attempt to douse a fire thought to have been initiated by fireworks.
The fire proved to be a big threat to a number of homes in the city of Vacaville.
The fire was entirely tamed on Sunday, but after it had caused some amount of damage over an area of 320 acres. The night-breeze facilitated the spread of the flames that began on Saturday at approximately 9.32 pm.
It was initially limited to an area of 5-10 acres, but thanks to the winds, it spread far and wide. The fire initiated moves to evacuate men, women and children from the area near Pena Adobe Park.
A dry weather with winds blowing to the tune of 40mph on Saturday night favored the spread of embers all over. Evacuations had removed around 125 people from their homes.
While the flames threatened to destroy several homes, none were eventually torched by the fire. Officials from the Red Cross have been helping rescued people who breathed in some amount of smoke from the fire. It can prove to be detrimental to their health.
The exact cause of the fire-breakout is still being investigated even as some people claim to have seen someone busy with fireworks in the vicinity of the park before the flames caught up.
Fire has not been a novel phenomenon in the El Dorado County close by. Somerset witnessed a fire ignited by lightning that spread over 25 acres, while another in Shingle Springs wrecked havoc over an area of 35 acres. None of the fires could cause any damage.
