(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — A person throwing fireworks may be to blame for damaging two homes and engulfing a tree in flames in Sacramento, California, according to fire department investigators.

Someone apparently tossed fireworks into the air and it landed onto a dry juniper tree, ABC News affiliate KXTV-TV reported.

The tree caught fire, and the flames later spread to a fence and two nearby homes, Sacramento City Fire Department spokesman Roberto Padilla told KXTV-TV.

Amateur video, which was posted on YouTube on Friday, captured the fast-spreading flames.

No one was injured and the damage to the homes was reported to be minor.

Padilla said that juniper trees are rich in oil and very flammable, particularly in drought conditions.
