Updated: Creek Fire Burns 1300 Acres, Some Road Closures Lifted

The series of fires currently burning in the Clear Creek, Happy Valley, Igo and Cloverdale areas are believed to have been intentionally started. A vehicle was seen in the areas of origin of several of the fires and the timing of the starts points to a mobile arsonist. Officials are looking for a gold or tan minivan, possibly a Dodge Caravan or something similar, possibly a 1980’s or 90’s model, according to Sheriff Tom Bosenko. A number of mandatory evacuations are in effect for residents of many areas that can be seen on the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Facebook Page.  Clear Creek Road has been reopened from Highway 273 to Honeybee Road. However, Honeybee Road remains closed. The evacuations off Placer Road have been lifted and the road is open, all other evacuations and road closures remain in effect.
