Just before 5:00 PM, the Kern County Fire Department received a call for trash on fire alongside a house in the 7900 block of Nolan Court. A reinforced structure response was started. Residents evacuated the home prior to the arrival of fire crews. When firefighters arrived, they encountered an exterior fire on the right side of the home. The fire had already extended into the attic. Crews worked to protect the neighboring house and to extinguish the fire. A search of the home was conducted and portions of the ceiling were removed so that firefighters could access the fire in the attic. The fire was controlled in approximately 25 minutes. Six adults and six children were displaced by the fire. The American Red Cross is assisting with temporary housing.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by KCFD.
