McFarland,  CA

At 10:26 am on Wednesday, firefighters were dispatched to a report of a house on fire in the 100-block of San Pedro Street in McFarland. Upon arrival E33 was faced with a working fire in the bedroom of a single story, 1200 square foot residence. Crews initiated an interior attack and search while other crews ventilated and protected the exposure next door. The fire was controlled with minimal structural damage but the building did have extensive heat damage throughout the home and will be temporarily uninhabitable. No one was home at the time and two adults will be displaced. Damage estimated at $83,500. Cause appears to be accidental, possibly due to old electrical wiring in the home.
