  • Fire destroys house in Mount Eden

    The state fire marshal is looking into the cause of a house fire that destroyed a home in Mount Eden Sunday night, said Fire Chief Doug Herndon.

    “It was a vacant house, so at least no residents were injured, although we did have a firefighter with a minor injury, but he is OK now,” he said.

    Herndon said the call came in at about 2 a.m. and when firefighters arrived on the scene, the house was already totally engulfed by flames.

    “It wasn’t safe for us to go inside, so we had to fight the fire from the outside only,” he said.
