REDDING, Calif. - Redding Fire crews responded to two transient related fires Tuesday morning.

The first was a vacant house in disrepair on the 2000 Block of Victor Ave. The house was completely involved before the arrival of the first fire engine. Fire investigators said they determined transients squatting in the house started it after interviewing neighbors. 

Crews remained on scene for a two-hour mop-up.
