REDDING, Calif. – Redding Firefighters responded to a small vegetation fire at Benton Airpark Wednesday afternoon.

The vegetation fire started at Benton Airpark along Gold Street around 2:30 p.m, according to crews. Forward progress on the fire stopped at 2 ½ acres around 3 p.m.

Officials at the Redding Fire Department said there is no immediate threat to structures.

RFD told Action News Now they're thankful crews stopped the fire before it went into a nearby drainage, where it could have then made a run toward Mercy Medical Center, offices, and homes.

The fire is believed to be caused by a human because of the amount of transient activity in the area, according to the Redding Fire Department.

Crews are expected to be on scene mopping up until about 5:15 p.m.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
