OROVILLE, Calif. - Oroville Fire responded to a call about a house fire at 7:29 pm Monday night on Evanswood Circle.

As they were responding, Battalion Chief Rob Buckhout told Action News Now they saw smoke from across town.

When the first engine arrived, heavy fire and smoke were coming from the back of the building, and requested more resources from CAL FIRE.

The fire seemed to be coming from a back bedroom that extended up into the attic, but they were able to knock it down within 15 minutes.

Since it is a duplex, Chief Buckhout said aside from smoke damage, the other house did not burn.

“All the teams worked together and made a pretty good stop on this fire. It is a duplex, so they did a really good job saving the other one that was not involved by the time of our arrival,” he explained.

People who were inside both residences were out by the time crews arrived with no injuries.

A dog did run back into the structure, but they were able to get him out safely.

There was a cat with a litter of kittens in the bedroom where the fire started, but they did not survive.

We asked if they know of any cause, but it is still under investigation.
