NEWS-LEDGER — OCT 24, 2012 –

The West Sacramento Fire Department reports an unusual incident Oct. 11 during a brush fire near County Road 126 and Old River Road just north of city limits.

West Sacramento and Elkhorn fire crews responded to a one-acre brush fire at about 3:43 p.m. The fire grew, and more firefighters were called to help.

“Midway through the extinguishment,” reports a WSFD spokesperson, “a smoke cloud originating from the CHP Academy drifted over the scene. It appeared that the CHP Academy was performing an exercise near the high-speed track and expelled some type of tear gas.”

“The smoke cloud quickly passed and all personnel recovered from the event.”
