    More than 1,100 in Yolo County without power after downed power line sparked grass fire

    May 22, 2022 - Alexandra Yoon-Hendricks, The Sacramento Bee


      Strong winds in rural parts of Yolo County are inhibiting efforts to restore power to Pacific Gas and Electric customers, after a downed power line near the town of Esparto sparked a small grass fire.

      About 1,160 households in unincorporated west Yolo County — mostly along Highway 16 between Rumsey and Brooks, and north of Capay along County Road 85 — are still without power, according to PG&E estimates.

      An estimated time for when power will be restored is “unknown under conditions,” Yolo County officials said in a statement posted on Twitter about 8:30 a.m. Friday.

      The wind may cause additional outages, Yolo County officials stated.

      The small grass fire near Esparto was sparked after a car crash led to a downed power line, according to Yocha Dehe Fire Department. There were no significant injuries, officials said, and firefighters quickly doused the flames.
