A fire in South Oroville this morning destroyed most of an unoccupied house on A Street. The fire was first reported to the El Medio Fire Department at 7:56 a.m. and was controlled within a half hour of the first call.
According to John Loewe of the Oroville Mirror, most of the damage was centered around the back portion of the house. Power lines were down on the street but the Fire Department stated only one neighboring residence is without power at this time. The department also indicated it appeared the home had been abandoned.
Fire investigators are still at the scene to determine how the fire started.
