Tehama County firefighters put out a vegetation fire, which threatened a nearby structure early Sunday morning.

Cal Fire was dispatched just after 3:00 a.m. on Highway 99 in Los Molinos to a vegetation fire.

Fire crews were able to stop the forward spread of the blaze to a quarter of an acre.

Battalion Chief Matt Chamblin says the fire is considered suspicious because the origin of the fire started far enough from the highway.

A nearby building was being threatened during the time of the fire but was not damaged.

No injuries were reported.
