REDDING, Calif. - At about 12:30 Friday afternoon, Redding firefighters were called to the 2900 block of Hawn Avenue in Redding for a house fire.

Investigator Mike Ham with the Redding Fire Department says the fire started in the carport next to the home and spread to the house.

It destroyed at least 25-50% of the home as well as some damage to a home next door.

Ham says a woman was home when it happened but she escaped uninjured.

No one was home at the house next door.

Ham says the fire ignited an open gas line, so PG&E crews had to dig into the ground and manually cut the line that was feeding the fire.

At about 2 p.m. fire crews began their investigation into what happened.
