Butte County firefighters are at the scene of structure fire. The fire broke out on the side of an attached garage on West Liberty Road in Gridley. The fire started about 8pm. The fire quickly spread to the inside of the garage, which was storing hay and the hay caught fire.
Two elderly residents in the home managed to get out safely. The fire then spread to about 2 acres of field.
Fire investigators are looking into whether there was a control burn that may have escaped. Firefighters were able to keep the fier from spreading to the rest of the house. The blaze was knocked down in about 30 minutes tonight.
