Amateur video shows huge flames caused by a firework thrown into a tree


The stunning 15 minute video of a residential fire engulfing a tree and damaging two South Sacramento homes on Simcoe Court was posted on a YouTube page Friday evening.

Sacramento City Fire Department investigators said a preliminary investigation determined someone threw a firework into the air and it landed in a dry juniper tree. Department spokesperson Roberto Padilla said almost instantly the juniper tree exploded into flames and quickly spread to a fence and two nearby homes.

Pacific announces new Sacramento degrees: Expansion is milestone in region’s higher education

University of the Pacific celebrated June 26 the expansion of its Sacramento campus, longtime home of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, into a multidisciplinary center that will educate the professionals California needs in the decades ahead.

Joining the law school will be new graduate programs in health, education, business and public policy. Five new degrees will be rolled out over the next two years: Master of Business Administration; Doctor of Education; Master of Public Policy; Master of Physician Assistant Studies; and Master of Public Administration.

Eibeck, president of University of the Pacific. “Pacific has been a pioneer in higher education in California for more than a century and a half, and it is with great excitement that we expand our presence and service in the Sacramento region.”
