Fire officials say the Saddle Fire did not grow at all Wednesday and containment is now at 90 percent.

The lightning-sparked blaze has burned 1,546 acres since it broke out June 9 near Hyampom, about halfway between Eureka and Redding.

No serious injuries have been reported, but four firefighters have been hurt battling the fire.

An evacuation order for about 100 people along County Road 311 southeast of the fire was lifted Sunday.
