SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. -

A vegetation fire was burning Thursday morning near Happy Valley, just south of Redding.  As of 9:20 a.m., the fire had burned approximately two acres.

The huge plume of smoke could be seen from Interstate 5.  It's burning off Highway 273 near Happy Valley Road in the Cascade area of Shasta County.

CAL FIRE crews said they will make access after a dozer clears the roadway.
