Cedar Ridge, Ca — A flue fire that escaped into the attic caused considerable damage to a residence at 16830 Big Hill Rd. this morning.
One person was in the home when the fire started, and she was able to escape without injuries.
The home has been condemned due to the extent of the fire damage, and the Red Cross was called in to assist the displaced resident.
?The crews were able to knock it down quickly,? says Steve Gregory of the Tuolumne County Fire Department. ?Unfortunately, the flue fire got into the attic and destroyed the woman´s home.?
The fire started at around 6:30am.
