REDDING, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire in Northern California that authorities say was sparked by exhaust from a truck at a marijuana cultivation site has prompted new evacuations.
It was not immediately clear how many homes were included in the new evacuation order Monday in the rural community of Igo in Shasta County.
Fire officials said the Bully Fire was threatening 15 homes after destroying eight homes and 10 other structures. It had burned through more than seven square miles, and was 15 percent contained.
Fire crews have been hampered by steep terrain and dry conditions. Temperatures were expected to climb as high as 108 degrees Monday.
About 100 additional firefighters were called in overnight, bringing total personnel on the scene to more than 1,800.
A 27-year-old Sacramento man was arrested Saturday and accused of recklessly causing the fire.
