Firefighters are battling a blaze that is threatening homes in the South Land Park area.
The fire broke out just after 12 p.m. near Lake Park and Silver Lake Drive, south of Reichmuth Park, said Sacramento Fire Capt. Jim Doucette.
There are big trees and grass on fire.
Two or three houses are threatened, but have not been damaged so far, he said.
The residents have not been asked to leave their homes.
