  • Looks like the fire started outside next to the porch burning the debri,the fence, siding and going up into the rafters. Was this a discarded cigarette-“still light” cause? More than likely. Good job

  • It’s typical practice to burn your trash in fortuna.. I wonder if this is a trash related fire?
