Cause of blaze unknown

Investigators concluded Monday’s fire at 10941 Bettcher Court, off Ridge Road and Alta Street, started in the middle of a carport floor. But the cause couldn’t be determined, Nevada County Consolidated Battalion Chief Spike Newby said Tuesday. Renter Pamela Evans and her five pets escaped the blaze, which destroyed the carport and a camper, and damaged part of the house and a car.
