Fire stopped at four acres in South Redding after flames spark from transient camp


An overnight fire burning four acres in south Redding, near the Anderson Cottonwood border, is out after flames took off from a "well-established" transient camp.

The Redding Fire Department determined the cause to be human. The fire was located at Wyndham Lane and Progress Drive, east of the Anderson Cottonwood irrigation canal.

The fire burned four acres in thick vegetation. Several resources, including the Old Shasta water tender and Cal Fire, remained on scene for an extended amount of time until the area was clear of any smoldering spots.

Firefighters have left the scene as of 3:43 a.m. Wednesday. The fire will remain under further investigation.
