This is the first place photos/info will appear on SacMav.com. When an incident happens or a story breaks, the first thing you will see is a gallery appear here with early images and info. Additional images/info will appear in the gallery as things develop and come available. When action is happening, make this page your first stop for info and images.
A large fire broke out in a field, Saturday, July 14, 2012, north east of Downtown Sacramento in Rio Linda. When fire crews arrived, nearly ten acres had already been consumed and was making a run, crossing one creek and headed toward the next. Firefighters made a stand at the road and held the fire there. Had the fire spotted or leaped the road, it would have taken off in the next field and headed towards homes. To complicate matters, winds were moderate and the helicopter was only able to make one drop before its pump failed; rendering the air-support to be eyes-in-the-sky only.
One of the inherent risks of the very nature of “rapid” and immediate news/information delivery is that many, even often times, early information is inaccurate. In an effort to deliver information to you rapidly, as it is happening, mis-information may be transmitted. We will update, correct, fix those errors in information as quickly as possible as we become aware of them. We make every effort to fact check and deliver accurate information to you as it is happening. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we aim to serve you “rapidly” and responsibly.
