The Bully Fire has grown to 8,100 acres as of Tuesday. That makes the fire 27 acres larger than the Clover Fire that ravaged the Northstate in September of 2013. The fire has been burning since Friday in the Ono area southwest of Redding. Containment is 20 percent.
A slew of vegetation fires sprung up Tuesday - one after the other. It was something Shasta County crews and CAL FIRE were racing to deal with. KRCR News Channel 7’s Evan Schreiber caught up with them today to talk about the dangers.
