SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - Firefighters were able to quickly contain a vegetation fire in the City of Shasta Lake on Sept. 17 before it destroyed any structures. 

The fire started just after 5 p.m. on Sept. 17 between I-5 and Cascade Boulevard.

Winds helped the fire spread fast, but quick action from firefighters allowed them to contain it at five acres. 

Several agencies provided mutual aid to help in the firefight, and the crews received heavy aerial support as well. 

"You know, we're getting the benefit of the doubt on all dispatches, getting as many resources as they have available given the information they're given at the time of dispatch," said Chuck Dahlen, battalion chief for the City of Shasta Lake Fire District. "When I first got here, it was reasonably quick to request additional resources." 

The cause of the fire is not known at this point.
