CLEARLAKE OAKS – A fire damaged a cabin at a Northshore resort Sunday morning.


The fire took place at the Blue Fish Cove Resort in Clearlake Oaks.


The call went out at about 8:15 a.m., said Northshore Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Ken Petz.


Northshore Fire was assisted in fighting the blaze by Lake County Fire Protection District, said Petz.


Petz said the fire started when a man was working on a gas stove in the kitchen of a vacation cabin.


The man also was caught on fire in the blaze, and was transported to Sutter Lakeside Hospital by a Lake County Fire Protection medic unit, Petz said.


Four fire engines – three from Northshore Fire and one from Lake County Fire – and between 15 and 20 firefighters responded to the scene, said Petz.


Petz said the fire was brought under control in 30 minutes, with the mop up process taking about an hour.


He estimated that the cabin was close to being a total loss.


Randy and Suzanne Olsen purchased the resort last August.


Suzanne Olsen said the resort is still open for business, and they'll be fixing up the damaged cabin right away.


She said that the man who was working on the stove is OK and was back at home on Sunday afternoon.
