Just after 9:45 AM this morning, the Kern County Fire Department received multiple calls for a house on fire in the 8800 block of Panama Road. First arriving crews found an abandoned house that was 50 percent involved in flames. Downed power lines created a hazard to firefighters working on scene. Crews were made aware of the hazard and used flagging tape to isolate the area of the downed lines. Firefighters were able to control the fire in approximately 30 minutes, however the structure sustained approximately $50,000 in damage. Fire Investigators were called to the scene and the cause of the fire is under investigation. They believe the fire to be suspicious at this time.
