Sponsored by:

Murphys, CA — There was some confusion while crews tried to respond to a structure fire Wednesday morning.

Fire crews received the call to respond to 1371 Coyote Creek Drive. But it turns out there are two roads names Coyote Creek, one in Vallecito and one in Murphys. The fire ended up being in Murphys. It was extinguished shortly after noon.

The fire caused $15,000 in damage to a double wide mobile home located at the end of a gravel road and destroyed $5,000 of the building’s contents.

C.D.F. has listed the cause of the fire as electrical power.
