Grass Fire In Fairfield, California Damages/Destroys More Than 12 Homes


By Paul Johnson

Fairfield, California (CNN) - Firefighters in the central California town of Fairfield have contained a fast-moving grass fire.
Residents gathered on the street Wednesday ....waiting for the green light to go home...if they still have a home.
They were forced out by the fire that damaged or destroyed 15 homes on Tuesday.
Darrol Prill is angry...he lost his home in the fire.
If they're gonna create some kind of a fire break alongside the roads , I mean - they do it everywhere else. Why wouldn't they be doing it out there, so... again... I thought there was a fire break out there and again - I was surprised it crossed over the creek.
Some 200 firefighters responded to the fire but were unable to prevent it from spreading into the neighborhood.
