By From page A8 | January 08, 2014

VACAVILLE — The Vacaville Fire department responded to a vegetation fire on Mesa Court, Tuesday night.

Firefighters arrived in the 100 block of Mesa Court just after 7:45 p.m. to find a tree on fire.

The tree had overgrown the chimney of a house and sparks from the chimney ignited the tree, said Battalion Chief Phil Sanner of the Vacaville Fire Department.

Sanner said there was no damage to the home and only vegetation burned.

Firefighters had the blaze under control by 8 p.m., he added.

    Was it a no burn day for Vacaville though? You know they're special, and they fall under Sacramento,not Bay Area like we do. No wonder people who live in VV think they're better than FF&SS. I think it's quite deserving myself lol. We can't burn, but those who can aren't smart enough to know how.
