Fire Log for the Week Ending Oct. 3 The Lincoln Fire Department responded to 54 calls for service during the week ending Oct. 3. The incident totals and types included: 32 Emergency Medical Service calls - (Medical Aids) 2 Fire Calls – One Mutual Aid call to Cal Fire and one Vegetation Fire 1 Hazardous Condition – Someone dumped paint in the gutter 9 Public Assists 8 Good Intents 2 False Alarms The Lincoln Fire Department was dispatched to two fires. The first fire was a mutual aid to Cal Fire. Cal Fire requested assistance from Lincoln for a large vegetation fire. When firefighters arrived, they were assigned to a division to prevent the fire’s spread. With the support of other local agencies, the fire was promptly extinguished. On Saturday, Oct. 3, firefighters were on standby at the Lincoln Air Show when two separate grass fires started between the runway and the main taxiway. Firefighters from Lincoln, along with an Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting Unit, attacked the fires within one minute but, with red-flag conditions, the fires quickly spread. Additional resources were called in to contain the fires. A total of about 17 acres were burned before the fire was stopped. The cities of Rocklin and Roseville, along with Cal FIRE, assisted with the blazes. The fire’s cause is undetermined and it is unable to rule out the use of pyrotechnics on the wings of an aircraft during the air show. There were no injuries. The hazardous-condition call was the caller complaining of seeing a man dumping paint down a storm drain. Firefighters found some evidence of possible contamination. Firefighters contacted the homeowner, who said he was staining his fence and rinsed his brushes and pan in the street. The captain advised the man of possible environmental effects that these types of actions could have. The Lincoln Fire Department provided this information.
