LAKEPORT – Two people escaped a fire that completely destroyed their house Saturday morning.


Lakeport Fire Protection District Chief Ken Wells said the fire was reported at about 5:45 a.m. at a Sixth Street home.


Two people in the rented single-story home woke up to find it fully involved in fire, said Wells, and were able to escape.


Wells said 10 firefighters from Lakeport Fire, two from Kelseyville Fire Protection District and a total of three engines responded to the fire.


Firefighters were on scene until about 11:30 a.m., Wells said.


The cause of the fire, said Wells, is a cigarette. One of the home's residents had fallen asleep while smoking.


The home is a complete loss, Wells said.
