Sunday’s heavy winds fanned some fires in Redding.
At Noon a 1,000 square foot barn was fully involved in fire off Van Diver Lane, which is in South Redding off Eastside Road. The damage was so extensive investigators were unable to determine a cause. Burning embers from the barn fire were blown into a nearby field, burning a 50 by 20 foot spot.
Another fire broke out at 1:30PM on Parkview Avenue, burning a vehicle, a fence and a small outbuilding. Redding Fire crews stopped the flames before they spread to nearby homes. That fire apparently had been caused by someone lighting a barbeque.
