UPDATE 6:13 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018 - There were still several engines from the Redding Fire Department and Cal Fire at the scene at 5 p.m. on Sunday. City of Redding officials have told us now that road blocks are still in place.

Fire officials said the location of the fire, coupled with the amount of equipment dispatched to fight it, made it necessary to close down Quartz Hill Road between Terra Nova Drive and River Ridge Road. After approximately one hour, the road block was reduced to Quartz Hill Road between Stone Canyon Drive and River Ridge Road as the fire was contained.


UPDATE 5:43 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018 - Crews from CAL FIRE and the City of Redding Fire Department battled a 13-acre fire Sunday along Quartz Hill Road near Terra Nova Drive. The fire broke out just before 1 p.m.

Fire crews had the flames qucikly under control, thanks to air attack as well as ground crews, officials said.

Homes in the area were threatened for a time, but officials said they did not believe they were in danger.

The fire was very close to where the edge of the Carr Fire reached within the limits of Redding. 

Fire crews will remain on scene for several hours mopping the fire up.

The roads in the area have since re-opened.
