A fast-moving grass fire on the American River Parkway in Rancho Cordova has been contained after burning about 7 acres.
Capt. Christopher Quinn of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said the fire was reported about 3 p.m. near the El Manto access off Ambassador Drive. No homes were threatened.
He said the fire was in the same general area as three other grass fires believed to have been deliberately set along the parkway in recent weeks. Investigators are trying to determine whether there are any links between today's fire and the earlier incidents, Quinn said.
