Evacuations and road closures remain in place, but Cal Fire is reporting officials are starting to get a handle on the Mountain Fire.
It’s currently 820 acres in size, according to the Redding Record Searchlight.
The blaze was moving quickly earlier today, at one point, doubling in size in an hour, but according to Cal Fire Public Information Officer Robert Foxworthy the winds fanning the flames have subsided. He said, even so, it’s important that residents stay vigilant.
“There’s always a chance that we could have to expand the evacuation zone, just due to the fact that the fire isn’t completely extinguished and it’s still burning,” Foxworthy said.
