REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Crews continue to make progress as they battle a wildfire along Interstate 5 in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest in Northern California.
Fire officials say the Salt Creek fire is 75 percent contained after consuming 980 acres, or about 1.5 square miles. Officials expect to have the blaze surrounded by Sunday evening.
The fire is burning near the interstate, about 20 miles north of Redding. Officials are cautioning drivers about smoke in the area, but say Interstate 5 is open in both directions.
Evacuations for the area of Lakeview Estates have been lifted.
The blaze began in the median of I-5 on Wednesday afternoon and is believed to have been sparked by human activity.
