SOLANO COUNTY - A bird on a wire is believed to be the cause of a grass fire in Solano County.

It happened at Pleasants Valley Rd and Vaca Valley Rd around 6:30 on Saturday night and went to a 4th alarm at about 6:45 p.m.

Crews were concerned about strong winds carrying the flames toward a nearby ranch house.
