A hot afternoon in Solano County has turned into quite the busy day for area fire departments.
After a gas leak forced the evacuations of residents in a Vacaville neighboorhood earlier today, three gas fires popped between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on the I-80 corridor in Fairfield, according to the Fairfield Fire Department's Twitter account.
Fairfield Fire Chief Vince Webster said he had no information to believe all three calls were related to one another. He did say the hot and windy conditions amplify fire risk.
In addition, Vallejo fire crews responded to reports of a two-alarm vegetation fire that was sparked by a fully-involved big rig fire on Eastbound I-80 at Highway 37 at 4:08 p.m.
In Suisun, fire crews recieved calls of a vegatation fire on Joyce Island at 4:24 p.m. The fire was easily visible from Highway 12 and did not appear close containment as of 5:45 p.m.
In Dixon, fire crews responded to a call of a vegetation fire at the intersection of Highway 113 and Midway Road.
