The blaze has burned 103 acres and is now 95 percent contained. The fire started in Chico Fire's jurisdiction, but the fire spread across Highway 32 into Butte County Cal Fire's jurisdiction.
There were evacuation warnings for residents of the area, but they were cancelled after firefighters were able to quickly stop the foreword progress of the blaze.
