At 2:25 p.m., dispatchers received multiple reports of a structure fire in the community of Riverkern.  A reinforced alarm was dispatched.  Engine 76 arrived on scene and reported that a large residential structure was fully involved.  Three additional structures were threatened.  Firefighters attacked the fire, protected nearby houses, and searched the interior of buildings for possible occupants.  The residents were not home at the time of the fire.

Firefighters were able to save all three nearby homes—however one house sustained minor damage estimated at $10,000.  The fully involved building suffered $100,000 damage, but firefighters were able to salvage some of the property and save $50,000 of the structure.  Two adults are displaced by the fire. No report of injuries to civilians or firefighters.  Resources from USFS were positioned in the area due the potential of the fire igniting the dry vegetation and starting a wildfire.
