Structure Fire - 12015 Sierra Way, Kernville

 The Kern County fire department responded to a report of a home on fire at 12015 Sierra Way in Kernville. First arriving personnel stated the home was approximately 30% involved by fire. The fire personnel quickly deployed hose lines to halt the progression of the fire. One occupant was in the home at the time of the fire and escaped the home without being injured. The displaced occupant will be staying with a neighbor until further arrangements can be made. The cause of the fire is under investigation but the possibility of electrical short circuit has not been ruled out due to occupant statements. The quick response of fire personnel saved a majority of the home and contents. Extinguishment of the fire was slightly hampered by electrical lines down in the rear of the home which possibly electrified a chain link fence. Electricity company was called out to mitigate the hazardous situation. The Kern County fire department would like to remind home owners that if lights flicker, outlets occasionally do not work, or you feel there are electrical issues in your home, turn off your power and have a qualified electrician inspect it before turning it back on.
