INITIAL REPORT: Officials from Cal Fire have issued a "code red" evacuation warning to residents in an area of the Mt. Shasta Vista subdivision as firefighters respond to a brush fire in the area. The subdivision is a residential area southeast of Montague.
Firefighters are calling this the "Vista Fire."
The warning covers the intersection of Trail End Road and Country Road to Bonanza Road and Highway A12 down to Juniper Drive Road, according to Cal Fire.
The fire itself is last estimated at only 2 or 3 acres, but Cal Fire officials said that it could become a threat to homes if the winds were to shift suddenly. The agency acknowledged that strong winds are becoming problematic.
Multiple ground and air resources are on the scene, Cal Fire said. The fire's source remains under investigation.
