HAPPY VALLEY, Calif - The Shasta County Bomb Squad has detonated additional explosives, Saturday morning, marking it the fourth day of operation at a Happy Valley residence.

Shasta County sheriff’s officials (SCSO) conducted the operation Saturday, at 5747 Happy Valley Road, Anderson.

SCSO is ordering a precautionary evacuation around the area and residents affected by the Feb. 27 incident might be required to evacuate again. 

Deputies will then destroy the home on Monday after all the explosives have been destroyed.

The destruction of the home will take place at noon on Monday, prompting Happy Valley Elementary School District to close all day on Monday as a “precautionary measure.”

SCSO officials said that streets will be closed for the operation including:

• The intersection of Happy Valley Road and Palm Avenue
• The intersection of Happy Valley Road and Flowers Lane

People who live inside the evacuation zone will be granted access to leave, but they cannot re-enter until the evacuation order has been lifted.

There will be an evacuation center for those affected by the operation, the center is located at 5400 Happy Valley Road, which will have a Red Cross signage, to indicate the location.
