About 15 acres of remote grassland were scorched when a helicopter made a hard landing northwest of Galt on Tuesday afternoon.

The pilot was not injured in the landing or resulting grassfire, but one firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and was taken for treatment, said John Michelini, deputy fire chief of the Cosumnes Fire Department. Several other firefighters also had minor symptoms of heat exhaustion but were treated on-scene, he said.
