The Cosumnes Fire Department is investigating a fire Sunday night that burned 3 buses at Kinder Care preschool near Elk Grove – Florin Road and Bond Road.
On Sunday, Feb. 12 at about 8:35 p.m., Cosumnes Fire responded to reports of a vehicle fire at 9250 Elk Grove Florin Road. Upon arrival, they found three small passenger buses on fire.
Fire crews immediately started extinguishing the fire to keep a nearby bus from igniting. A second engine company was added to assist with fire suppression and hazardous materials containment. Because the incident occurred less than 200 feet from the Laguna Creek, crews created dykes and implemented spill control cleanup to keep fuel and other liquids out of the storm drains.
After fire suppression and environment protection efforts, Cosumnes Fire Investigators found evidence to indicate the fire was caused by an attempted theft of fuel from the buses. Elk Grove Police Department was on scene with fire personnel and is assisting with the investigation.
