At about 9:30 p.m. on Monday, February 10, a call was received reporting a fire in the backyard of a residential home by neighbors. Upon arrival, fire was observed in the backyard and flames were issuing from the attic. The fire from the attic was threatening additional structures. As firefighters began operations to extinguish the fire they found downed power lines behind the residence. No one could confirm if any residents were home so firefighters began a search inside the residence. No one was found inside. The fire was extinguished and firefighters continued to work at salvaging property for the residents. The residents arrived and Kern County Fire personnel were told 8 people lived in the home, 1 adult and 7 children. Contact with Red Cross was arranged for the family and a California Fire Foundation Save Card was activated for the family. No injuries were reported.
