REDDING, Calif.- The Redding Police Department evacuated several residences and businesses in the Masonic Ave. and Lake Blvd. area due to a two-acre vegetation fire that was threatening structures. 

At 2:50 p.m. the evacuation was lifted and fire crews put the fire out by 2:05 p.m.

Of two fires, the first was reported at 12:55 p.m. and when crews arrived it was about a quarter acre. 

There was also a spot fire that was 100 feet by 50 feet that started by the wind from the main fire. 

The fire was behind a Little Caesars Pizza.

Redding Fire Department said this fire appeared to be human-caused and related to a nearby transient encampment. 

Residents were asked to stay out of their homes for at least an hour while fire crews contain the fire. 

Police blocked off Masonic Ave. but the street was reopened. 

Firefighters also responded to a fire in the area of 1286 Twin View Blvd. at 1:02 p.m. Thursday.

This fire was about a quarter acre and was started by illegal burns. 

There are no reports of injuries, according to the Redding Fire Department.

The three fires burned almost three acres in total and crews were on the scene for about three and a half hours.
