Creek Fire Contained

By  | 

Investigators now say the major wildfire burning near Susanville was human-caused.

Crews have completely surrounded the 1,500-acre Creek Fire. Flames broke out Tuesday and briefly threatened homes in the areas of Gold Run, Hidden Hills, Gold Crest and Gold Nugget.

Investigators believe the fire was caused by people because there were no lightning strikes in Susanville at the time.
