Shasta County Blazes Contained by CalFire

CalFire has declared full containment on two fires in the Oak Run area. They were both off of Oak Run Road and Pierce Hollow Road. Although they did not burn together they’re being treated as the same fire and dubbed the “Oak Incident”. They were fully contained Sunday night at a total of 128 acres. The cause is not known. CalFire says structures were never threatened.

CalFire says it was a lawnmower that started a fire off Dersch Road Sunday morning. The fire off Clear View Drive a little east of Prairie School was apparently started by a lawnmower that struck a rock. It burned a total of 1.2 acres.

Another fire that was located off Deschutes Road Sunday was also caused by a mowing operation, but it was a tractor with no spark arrestor. In that case the fire was contained to the tractor, which was destroyed.
