Fast-moving Delta Fire tops 22,000 acres as Interstate 5 remains closed, officials say | 06 Sept 2018 | The Delta Fire burning in Shasta County raged out of control for a second day after bursting in size Wednesday evening, continuing to close a large stretch of Interstate 5 in both directions, U.S. Forest Service officials reported Thursday. The fire grew "aggressively" overnight, with "flame lengths estimated at 300 feet high," according to a 9 a.m. incident update by the U.S. Forest Service. Burning north of Lakehead and about 10 miles from Redding, the Delta Fire started about 1 p.m. Wednesday and exploded to 15,000 acres by midnight, consuming bush and timber at a "critical rate of spread," Shasta-Trinity National Forest spokesman Joe Orosz said.
