Evacuations Lifted at Wildfire Along California-Nevada Border

Fire burned nearly 4 square miles

 

 

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Authorities say a fast moving wildfire on rural land along the California-Nevada border burned one home before crews were able to slow its spread.

Fire spokesman Adam Mayberry says the blaze about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Reno, Nevada was 50% contained Sunday morning.

It broke out Saturday in California’s Lassen County and quickly spread across the state line. Flames have charred 3.8 square miles (9.8 square kilometers) of dry brush.

Residents in the small Rancho Haven community were evacuated but residents were allowed back in on Sunday.

Meanwhile authorities lifted all evacuations after a Northern California wildfire destroyed seven homes and damaged five others.

Officials said the blaze in rural Shasta County near Redding was 80% contained Sunday.

The 600-acre (240-hectare) blaze hasn’t grown since Thursday.
