A fire broke out on the outside of the Scott’s Miracle Gro warehouse south of Elk Grove. Wood pallets on the outside of the building located at 10269 Carroll Road caught fire and sent flames and smoke shooting high in the air that was visible from Grantline Road east of highway 99. The Cosumnes Fire Department, with the assistance of other agencies, responded quickly and kept the fire from spreading to the warehouse.
The initial call came in at 3:45 pm and within minutes fire engines were on scene. Water tankers from Courtland and Wilton were called in to assist as well. No word yet on how the fire started.
