HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE – A fire destroyed a Hidden Valley Lake home on Saturday evening.


The fire, which took place at 19559 Stonegate Road, was reported just before 5 p.m.


When firefighters from Hidden Valley Lake's fire station arrived on scene, the left side of the house was fully engulfed in flames, officials reported.


Other fire districts around lake offered mutual aid, including South Lake County Fire Protection District, Northshore Fire, Lake County Fire and Kelseyville Fire, as well as a Konocti Conservation Camp Crew 4.


There were at least fire engines and two water tenders that responded, with multiple hoses running from nearby fire hydrants. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire before it damaged surrounding homes.


No one was inside or injured during the fire, although a small black dog is still unaccounted for, fire officials said.


The home was considered a total loss. Chief Rich Boehm estimated damages at more then $250,000, not including personal property within the home.
