(VIDEO) Crews battle structure fire in Rough and Ready

A fire broke out Tuesday in Rough and Ready that partially destroyed a home and detached garage before spreading to nearby vegetation, officials said.

Capt. Clayton Thomas with the Penn Valley Fire Protection District estimates the size of the fire, which began burning around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, was less than a tenth of an acre.

Firefighters contained the blaze in the 11000 block of Ironclad Road around 2:30 p.m., according to Thomas, but crews will likely remain on scene overnight to keep an eye on the area.

“We’re pretty much working on overhaul to make sure there’s no burning material in the walls — things like that,” Thomas said late Tuesday afternoon.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.
