A fire destroyed a home in Bella Vista Sunday morning.

It broke out just before 10:30 a.m. at a home on Oak Knolls Road off Highway 299.

When crews arrived they found the home fully involved in flames.

A column of black smoke could be seen for miles.

No one was home when it broke out and no one was hurt.

Firefighters said they were able to get the blaze under control relatively quickly.

"There was one exposure threatened. It took about 30 minutes for the fire to become contained. We responded with four engines, two water tenders, and one chief officer," said Battalion Chief Jim Ferguson of the CAL FIRE/Shasta County Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Fire officials estimate the total monetary loss to be about $200,000.
