RIVERSIDE – A total of 25 firefighters from the City of Riverside Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 9300 block of Magnolia Avenue early Tuesday morning.
The fire was reported at around 5:10 a.m. When the first firefighters arrived they located the two-story home with fire coming from the front and side of the structure. The fire was extended to the upper floor and strong winds continued to push the fire upward. Additional Engine Companies and breathing support were called to assist in fighting the blaze.
Strong winds continued to fuel the fire, forcing firefighters to fight the fire from the outside to protect other nearby structures. City fire officials said that it took about an hour to control the fire, but mop-up and a search of the structure took additional time.
There were no injuries reported as a result of the fire. The structure was vacant at the time of the fire.
