BERRY CREEK, Calif. – An early morning fire destroyed a house in Berry Creek on Monday.

Flames broke out just around 4:40 a.m. Monday on the 3100 block of Bald Rock Road, according to Cal Fire Butte County, Captain Konoli Martin.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to get on scene and about three hours to knock down the fire.

Some of the fire from the home did burn nearby vegetation. The homeowner was not home during the fire, but is now without a place to stay during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I feel horrible, there are approximately 800,000 people that are homeless right now and nowhere to go,” Captain Martin said. “They need help as well.”

That help is coming from the Red Cross. The fire also destroyed a car and burned some farm equipment. There are no reports of injuries and the cause is still being investigated.
