Fire destroys home, burns brush in Jones Valley

REDDING, Calif. -

A home in Jones Valley was destroyed by a fast-moving fire on Saturday morning.

Firefighters got the call just after 9:30 a.m. in the 7700 block of Juniper Drive.

When they arrived, they found a home fully-engulfed in flames and the surrounding vegetation on fire. Multiple structures were threatened.

Live power lines were also down at the location, making access to the structure difficult for firefighters.

The home was unoccupied at the time, and no one was hurt. Damage was estimated at $150,000.

Fire crews from CAL FIRE, Shasta County Fire, Redding Fire, Jones Valley, and Mountain Gate all responded.

PG&E crews were also on site working on the power lines.
