No structures were burned, Glantz said.

The fire started along a railroad track and there are transient encampments inthe area, Glantz said. The cause of the fire has not been determined.

“I don’t think it was caused by a train,” Glantz said.

Crews are still monitoring the fire but Glantz said firefighters will allow thehigh tide to extinguish it.

About 40-50 firefighters from Suisun City, Fairfield, Cordelia and Montezumafire departments assisted the Suisun Fire Protection District with the blaze.Crews remained on the scene all night.
