West Sacramento and Sacramento firefighters both responded to a challenging fire in rural Southport on September 6. They found a “fully involved” detached garage and barn — with no fire hydrants nearby at the Hilary Avenue location.

Firefighters shuttled fire from a water tender vehicle, and kept the fire from spreading to nearby homes. The barn was lost, along with four vehicles and various equipment, with damage estimated at $150,000.
