Fire Burns Home in Rancho Sequoia Last Night
At approximately 12:13 a.m., a call came into emergency dispatch that a structure was burning in the Rancho Sequoia area southwest of Alderpoint. According to Cal Fire, a two bedroom mobile home caught on fire–reportedly when batteries ignited in a solar room.
Chief Brian Anderson of Redway Fire reports that the structure was completely engulfed in flames when the first engines arrived. The flames had begun spreading to the surrounding wildland. A 20 by 100 foot area burned.
According to Cal Fire Duty Chief Kurt McCray, difficult access delayed suppression of the fire. The structure was completely lost.
Three CAL FIRE engines, two Alderpoint engines and one water tender from Redway responded and worked through the night mopping up.
