Crews Extinguish Escaped Debris Burn, Wrecking Yard Fire

Cal-Fire was called to put out an escaped debris burn in the Igo area on Friday. The fire off Small Farms drive was held to around a quarter acre. On Saturday Cal-Fire was called as a black smoke column rose from the Pick-N-Pull wrecking yard on Viking Way at the north edge of Redding. There were reports of a half dozen cars burning up. The fire apparently originated from batteries in a hybrid-electric vehicle.
