On Wednesday afternoon, the Salt Fire was seen burning near Shasta Lake east of Interstate 5 near the Salt Creek exit.
Evacuations were ordered in the area as I-5 was temporarily shut down due to the fire. It was reopened a couple of hours after the shutdown, but there were lane restrictions in effect until Friday morning.
At last report, the Salt Fire was 5,043 acres and 5% contained.
Firefighters will work to secure the western edge of the fire along the I-5 corridor and reduce further threats to property and structures.
