The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office issued a mandatory evacuation order as the Fawn Fire continues to burn.

The sheriff’s office tweeted that the order applies to all roads east of I-5 and north of Old Oregon Trail, extending all the way north to Shasta Lake.

A temporary collection point for evacuees is located at the Church of the Nazarene in Redding.

The Fawn Fire has burned nearly six thousand acres since it erupted on Wednesday. It is only 10 percent contained. At least 25 structures have burned, including some homes.
