BUTTE COUNTY, Calif.- CAL FIRE said they have stopped forward progress on five vegetation fires along Highway 99. 

The first fire was reported at 12:49 p.m. on the side of the road near Neal Rd. on Highway 99. That fire was contained at two acres and mop-up is currently taking place. They called this fire the Neal Fire. 

The remaining four fires were reported along the side of the road near Nelson Shippee Rd. and Highway 99, three along the west of Highway 99 and one on the east of Highway 99, according to CAL FIRE. They called this fire the Shippee Fire.

All fires have been contained and CAL FIRE is investigating the cause of them. 

The Butte County Sheriff's Office was called to assist with traffic due to poor visibility from the smoke along Neal Rd. 

CAL FIRE told Action News Now that while the cause is unknown, it is not uncommon for a car dragging a chain or with a blown engine to cause many fires in such a short time without noticing.
