Copperopolis, CA — CDF says a fire near Copperopolis early this morning destroyed a 9,000 square foot home under construction in Connor Estates.
Officials say the first engines responded at about 2:00am to find the water front structure fully involved.
The fire reportedly sparked two spot fires and did an unspecified amount of heat damage to five other homes and several vehicles in the area.
Ten engines from the Copperopolis Fire Protection District responded along with two hand crews and one bulldozer.
There is no damage estimate available and the cause is under investigation.
CDF says crews remain on the scene conducting mop-up operations and CDF aircraft will fly over the area today checking for hot spots.
