REDDING Calif. -The Fawn Fire is still very active in Shasta County, fire crews are working fearlessly to get the fire under control, but the rugged terrain seems to be a challenge.
Action News Now spoke to one man who decided to avoid evacuation orders and stay behind to protect his family's home.
Carl Packman has a home in Old Oregon Trail and said this fire makes him nervous that something could happen to his house.
"This house has been in our family since '84, '85, and to lose it would be devastating. You knew we have had this house for so many years, and it has a lot of memories in it," Packman said.
Meanwhile, Packman says one of the main reasons he stayed behind was to help the firefighters.
"They lost a garage across the street, I saved a house then there were hot spots that flared up later, so I was over there putting those out all night, up the road always and trying to help them out with hot spots, and you know they can's all cover everything. A little extra help here and there doesn't hurt," Packman said.
Carl said he plans still plans to stay behind still to help the firefighters.
Firefighters said if you are on evacuation order, leave now, but if you are under an evacuation warning, be prepared to go at any moment.
