REDDING, Calif. - A Redding couple is trying to figure out their next step after a fire swept through their home.

Firefighters got to the house around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning to smoke pouring out of the attic. Flames could be seen coming from the back of the home on the block of 1500 Lacey Lane in Redding.

Redding fire crews are responding to a structure fire, Tuesday morning.

Firefighters managed to knock down the fire within 25 minutes. The Redding Fire Department said most of the damage is confined to the back of the house.

But extreme heat and smoke did damage the rest of the home.

"They will not be able to occupy this residence," Battalion Chief Chris Varnum said. "It's got severe smoke and heat damage throughout the house."

Another big challenge for firefighters - the wind.

Firefighters said no one was home at time of the fire and nobody was hurt. PG&E and Redding Electric Utility were also on scene to secure utilities and disconnect power.
