SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Fire crews in Shasta County started a 100-acre controlled burn on Friday to help train crews in live fire conditions.

The burn was on Balls Ferry Road, north of Cottonwood. 

The fire also helped clear fuel in the area. 

Smoke was impacting the areas around Cottonwood and Anderson during the drills. 

"We have the students from the C-234 class, we show them how to do the firing techniques and then from there they come up with a plan on how they will do a firing plan and then use a drip torch and hopefully come up with a plan on how they will keep it inside the containment lines," said Battallion Chief Sean O'Hara.
