Suspected Arsonist Arrested After Fire Saturday Night

A suspected arsonist was arrested over the weekend in an area of Shasta County where residents are especially wary of fire after the devastation of the Carr Fire. Just after 10 O’clock Saturday night Cal-Fire crews were sent to a vegetation fire near the cross of Iron Mountain Road and Keswick Dam Road. When they got there they encountered 29-year-old Chris Fannin of Redding acting irrationally. A Cal-Fire Law Enforcement Officer spoke with Fannin, who reportedly admitted that he was on Methamphetamine and that he started the fire. He remains in Shasta County Jail, with bail set at $100,000. The fire burned 3.8 acres, with no structural damage.
