Firefighters are investigating whether an aircraft may have started a small grass fire near the Chico Airport Tuesday evening.
Around 5:30pm Tuesday evening, the Chico Fire Department received several calls of a plane crash at the Chico Airport.
The crash rescue unit determined there was no crash, but that an air tanker reported an engine fire. The tanker was able to land safely. Around the same time a grass fire was reported south of the airport.
The Chico Fire Investigation Team is trying to determine if the tanker may have caused the blaze during its emergency landing. Fire crews held the blaze to five acres. Cohasset Road was closed for a short time.
