Butte County fire crews are busy battling a vegetation fire that broke out near Oroville Friday afternoon.

The fire is burning near Mt. Ida Road and Circle View Drive, and has burned about an acre. The fire reportedly started inside a home and spread to nearby vegetation.

Fire officials are describing the fire as a 'hot fire' which means it is burning in extra dry vegetation, but they also say crews managed to stop forward progress around 3:45 p.m.

Crews are expected to remain on scene mopping up well into Friday evening.
