Fire In Colfax Destroys Home, Burns One Acre

Firefighters kept busy on Tuesday evening in Colfax with a structure fire off Sierra Canyon Lane.  The home backs up to the Colfax Cemetery.

The fire spread from the fully engulfed home to some nearby vegetation that required an air attack by Cal Fire.

Three air units were dispatched and quickly put out the burning vegetation before it could get out of control.  Eight ground crews from Cal Fire, Placer Hills, Colfax City Fire, Peardale Chicago Park Fire, and U.S. Forestry Agency assisted in battling the house fire and 1-acre blaze.

After the fire was under control and deemed out, crews stuck around to control hotspots.

The fire is still under investigation and there is no known cause.  The home is considered a total loss.
