Crews arrived at a completely engulfed single-family home with “strong winds forcing flames toward a neighboring house,” the CFD said.
Four people escaped the main home, and two residents and their dog escaped the exposure house next door, according to the CFD. There were no injuries.
They are being “assessed and assisted by an on-site fire researcher to determine needs,” the CFD said in a press release.
The CFD said the fire appears to have started in the back of the home.
The cause is under investigation.
