The single occupant of a Paradise home was able to escape as a fire ripped through the house Tuesday morning.
Cal Fire Butte County responded to a fully involved home on the 5000 block of Sawmill Road just before 6:45 a.m. When they arrived the resident was already out of the house and uninjured, but fire officials estimate the home suffered roughly $200,000 in damages.
Firefighters are still at the scene mopping up and the Red Cross has been requested to aid the resident displaced by the fire.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
