The Redding Fire Department suspects an individual may have started three spot fires on the Innerstate 5 near the Hilltop Drive over crossing which closed the number three slow lane for an hour. 

The fire was first reported by CHP at approximately 9:30 a.m. this morning. Redding Fire engines responded and quickly contained and extinguished the small fires to less than a quarter of an acre. There were no reports of injuries but the number three slow lane was closed for about an hour. 

Fire officials at the scene suspect this is a case of arson and are investigating reports that an individual may have been seen in the area prior to the fires being ignited.

Anyone with credible information is asked to contact either the Redding Fire or Police Departments.
