CITY OF SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - An old, abandoned restaurant was destroyed in a fire Wednesday evening in Shasta County.
The fire was reported around 5:30 p.m. on Wonderland Boulevard near the I-5 exit north of Redding. It was inside the Old Mesquite Steakhouse, which has been empty for about three years.
CAL FIRE says the fire did spread to some vegetation, but it was minimal. Firefighters will be on scene through the night mopping up and keeping an eye on hot spots because of the wind.
