RED BLUFF, Calif. -

Red Bluff firefighters responded to a structure fire early Friday morning. Investigators suspect the fire was human-caused.   

The fire was reported at 3:19 a.m. Friday at 237 Main Street.

The initial report indicated a person might have been trapped inside, but no one was found.

The building is a home converted into a business that is currently vacant.  Investigators said it appeared squatters had been inside.

The fire was inside the floor, and they extinguished the flames within about 10 minutes.
