Crews Battle Fire In Area Burned By The Carr Fire

A fire west of Redding has burned about 35 acres at last word, with 20% containment. The House Fire is in an area already burned by the Carr Fire in 2018. The fire broke out in the Old Shasta area at about 12:40PM Wednesday near Tollhouse Road and Rock Creek Road off Highway 299. The Park Service evacuated the east side of the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, including the visitor center, the park headquarters, East Beach, Kennedy Memorial Drive, the Whiskeytown dam, and all roads and facilities near those areas.
