Fire damages building at Sacramento County fish hatchery

A vegetation fire spread to a building at a fish hatchery in Sacramento County, Tuesday evening.

Crews were called out to a fire near the American River trail just before 8 p.m. When firefighters arrived, the fire had spread to a two-story attached garage at the Nimbus Fish Hatchery, according to the Sacramento Fire Department.

The garage functions as a live-in facility for workers at the hatchery, authorities said. Workers were at the scene, but everyone made it outside uninjured. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

The Nimbus Fish Hatchery is located along the American River, in the 2000 block of Nimbus Road in Gold River; a community located just to the east northeast of Sacramento.
