DAIRYVILLE, Calif. - A fire damaged three structures and shut down Highway 99 in Dairyville for several hours on Thursday morning.

Crews responded to a call just after 12:30 a.m. at the 11000 block of Highway 99 and Oklahoma Ave, in Dairyville, southeast of Red Bluff, Kevin Colburn with CAL FIRE Tehama-Glenn Unit said. 

Crews contained the fire just after 4 a.m. on Thursday.

Tehama County Volunteer Fire Station said out of the three structures, two were homes, fully involved in flames. The fire spread to one-fourth of an acre of vegetation.

Due to the fire nearing homes, Highway 99 was closed in both directions for several hours on Thursday morning. The roadway reopened around 5:30 a.m., according to Caltrans District 2.

Colburn said the wings were strong last night, not helping them when fighting this fire.

The fire is now contained, crews took several hours to mop up to the area.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
