SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Firefighters working the Delta Fire had a busy evening Tuesday after a new spot fire broke along the outer edges of the three-week-old fire.

Crews say it started around 3 p.m. just outside southern containment lines near Dog Creek Road.

They say the original burn area was around five to seven acres but caused a smoke plume that reached high into the sky. It could be seen from as far away as Anderson.

Air attack planes and helicopters quickly flew in to get a handle on the situation and were dropping water on the fire until the sunset.

Teams in the area told Action News Now they expected to have a handle on the flare-up soon.

There is no word yet on the official cause of the spot fire.
