Crews stop the spread of flames near Vacaville

Buena Vista Lane’s evacuation order has been downgraded to a warning and Buena Vista Lane has reopened, Solano County officials said, following a fire. The Timm Fire burned about 26 acres as of 8 p.m. near the 4400 block area of ​​Buena Vista Lane and Timm Road, Cal Fire, the state fire management agency, said Thursday night. Firefighters remained on site to monitor hot spots. The agency downgraded the number of acres, officials said, after determining an official perimeter. When firefighters say they are stopping the progress of a fire, it means they have stopped the flames from spreading in one or more particular directions. At 3:45 a.m., the Solano County Office of Emergency Services said evacuation orders remained at Buena Vista Lane, which was also closed to traffic. All other previous evacuation orders have been downgraded to evacuation warnings. With evacuation warnings, it is not necessary to leave your home, but it is strongly recommended that you be prepared to do so at any time in the event of dangerous wildfire behavior. When an evacuation order is issued, it means there is an immediate threat to livelihoods. Evacuation is mandatory in this case. Cal Fire said at 8 p.m. that the Timm fire was 80 percent contained. Containment is not a measure of the amount of fire extinguished, but rather the extent of a perimeter around the fire that is established to prevent it from spreading. Instead, two other indicators work as a better measure of progress in stopping a fire: whether forward progress is announced, or whether the number of acres burned slows down or stops increasing altogether. When crews bring a fire under control, they establish a barrier, whether natural or man-made. When a fire is fully contained, persistent hot spots within containment lines may persist for days, weeks, or even months after the fire is brought under control.

Highway 505 was closed for a short time but has since reopened, according to the California Highway Patrol. However, the road could be closed again, authorities said.

How to minimize the risk of fire

Across the region, green fields have turned brown as the grasses dry out. Grass fires will have the chance to spread quickly in conditions if a fire breaks out.

Firefighters are urging people to be careful and ensure they have a defensible space around their property. People should avoid using electrical equipment during this time and make sure to remove any chains attached to their cars.

Cal Fire is also suspending burning permits for outdoor residential burning beginning Monday, May 23. This affects Alpine, Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento and San Joaquin counties.

“We are experiencing drought conditions and severe fire-related weather much earlier than usual for this time of year,” Cal Fire’s Amador-El Dorado Division said. “Although debris burning is useful in reducing flammable vegetation, conditions in the Amador-El Dorado unit have reached the point where debris burning poses an unacceptable risk of starting a wildfire.”
