1 acre fire caused by juvenile in Redding

Small vegetation fire, Redding

On Saturday, the Redding Fire Department responded to a vegetation fire at the corner of Shasta View Drive and Tarmac Road. The fire was quickly extinguished at one acre and fire investigators believe the same person that started the fire also started a fire on Thursday.

Just before 7 p.m. Saturday firefighters responded to a small vegetation fire located in a vacant lot off Tarmac Rd. The fire was contained at one acre. After interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video, officials found a juvenile is responsible for starting the fire and for a vegetation fire in the same area on Thursday, June 21.

The juvenile is facing charges for both fires. The case is with the Shasta County District Attorney's Office.
