USA — A wind-swept wildfire in Northern California destroyed six empty structures and several vehicles and left a firefighter with heat exhaustion before it was contained.

Solano County sheriff’s officials said the fire just north of Vacaville started at about 3 p.m. Saturday and spread quickly, burning about 25 acres, destroying vehicles and outbuildings and forcing the brief evacuation of dozens of homes before it was brought under control a few hours later.

One firefighter from Dixon was hospitalized with heat exhaustion.

There were no reports of homes destroyed or civilian injuries.

Vacaville is in Solano County about 30 miles southwest of Sacramento.
