SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Fawn Fire is now 5,850 acres and remains at 10% containment, according to CAL FIRE.
CAL FIRE and the Shasta County District Attorney's Office provided an update Friday morning about the start of the fire and the current situation.
30-year-old Alexandra Souverneva was arrested on Wednesday and felony arson and committing arson during a state of emergency charges have been filed.
Investigators found that Souverneva was in possession of a working lighter at the time of her arrest.
According to the report, Souverneva said she tried to make a fire to boil water that contained bear urine and attempted to filter the water in a teabag.

Souverneva is also suspected of starting another fire and has had contact with law enforcement in other counties and Shasta County.
The fire is still burning and the investigation is ongoing as additional charges are likely depending on the final outcome of the fire.
She is currently facing nine years in state prison.
