Firefighters save Clearlake Oaks home

CLEARLAKE OAKS – A fast response by Northshore Fire saved a Clearlake Oaks home from destruction in a Sunday night fire.

The fire broke out at about 7 p.m. in a home on Lemon Circle in the Orchard Shores subdivision, said Northshore Fire Chief Jim Robbins.

The home, said Robbins, is shared by a mother and daughter. One of the women was cooking and left some grease on the stove top while she walked into the living room. While she was out of the room the kitchen caught fire.

Two engines, a utility vehicle and a Northshore Fire battalion chief quickly responded to the scene, assisted by a Cal Fire unit, said Robbins.

Firefighters contained the fire within minutes, said Robbins.

“They made a really good save on it,” Robbins said.

The home's kitchen was extensively damaged, Robbins reported, with smoke damage in the rest of the home.

The home's two residents will be displaced for a few days, but Robbins said that, with some clean up, they should be able to move back into the home soon.
