Lucerne home destroyed in Sunday fire

LUCERNE – A Sunday night house fire destroyed a Lucerne home, officials reported Monday.


A two-story shake home located at 6369 13th Avenue caught fire late Sunday at about 10:30 p.m., with Northshore Fire Protection District firefighters dispatched shortly afterward, reported Fire Captain Dave Emmel.


Twelve firefighters and four engines from all of Northshore Fire's stations responded, said Emmel, along with mutual aid from Lakeport Fire Protection District.


The house's resident was home when the fire started, said Emmel, but she was able to escape without injury.


The fire was put out by 11:30 p.m., said Emmel, with mop up continuing until about 12:45 a.m.


“We saved a lot of the house but it's not livable,” he said. “It really is a complete loss.”


Emmel said he wasn't sure of the home's value. Zillow.com listed the home's value at just over $125,000.


The woman who lived in the home didn't tell firefighters how the fire might have started, said Emmel, and the cause is still under investigation.
