Chico Fire Batallion Chief, Wes Metroka said they responded immediately and put water lines near all the neighborhing houses to stop any possible spread of the fire.
The homeowners, Tim and Kimberly Nance said they were shocked and didn't know how it started.
"Yeah, once I opened up my blinds and saw that my back patio was on fire, I just totally panicked and was screaming at her to call 9-1-1. I was just thinking what can we get out of there because I knew it was way too out of control to fight with a hose" said Tim Nance.
Firefighters worked swiftly as 9 engines reported to the scene. They worked in 10 to 15 minute shifts fighting the fire, then would switch out with another crew as they cooled off.
Firefighters were seen watering down their gear, drinking lots of water and watering themselves down as they fought the fire in triple-digit heat.
