Structure Fire - Sierra Drive and Cathy Court, Wofford Heights

Just before 8:45 this morning, the Kern County Fire Department received a call for smoke from the HVAC unit of a single-family home at the corner of Sierra Vista Dr. and Cathy Ct. The first arriving crew encountered heavy smoke and flames in the living room. They made entry through the front door with a hose line. Just inside the doorway they found a victim that exhibited obvious death criteria. The firefighters extinguished the fire in six minutes. The fire was contained to the living room although living room furniture was destroyed and the house suffered smoke damage throughout. One smoke alarm was in the residence; however, it was melted and it is unknown if it was working.
