A brush fire in Suisun City Saturday has led the city’s police department to encourage evacuations in a limited area for those who need more time to leave as well as those with pets or livestock.
The affected areas, said the department, included north of Petersen Road, south of E. Tabor Avenue, east of Walters Road and west of Travis Airforce base.
Cal Fire Sonoma-Lake-Napa shared on social media at 12:36 p.m. that the fire was happening near the 4600 block of Wiley Lane.
The evacuation notice was strongly encouraged, but not mandatory.
Crews now have that fire under control at 38 acres. They say the number of eucalyptus trees and winds in the area made the fire tough to fight.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
