REDDING, Calif. - A flat tired caused a brush fire in Redding Saturday morning, said the Redding Fire Department.

It happened just after 11 a.m. near Hartnell and Goodwater Avenues.

Firefighters say the driver pulled over on Highway 44 after noticing the flat.

But the rim did hit the road which caused a spark that flew into the grass.

“When there is a breeze, and wind blowing like this it doesn't take much to ignite a fire so just got to be careful where you pull off and how you do it. It’s just, unfortunately, one of those things,” said Will Francis, the Redding Fire Battalion Chief.

No injuries were reported.
