Cal Fire crews are battling a vegetation fire in Shasta County they say is difficult to access because of its remote location.

The Ponderosa Fire, burning in Whitmore, a small community about 35 miles northeast of Redding, is off of Cemetery Road and being fueled by strong winds.

At this time fire officials say there is no threat to any structures, but the fire continues to spread at a moderate rate.

The cause of the blaze has not been determined.
