No one hurt in Truckee house fire Wednesday

TRUCKEE, Calif. — No one was injured in a fire that broke out Wednesday morning at a Prosser Lakeview home, an official said.

At about 12:20 p.m., crews were still checking for embers after knocking down the fire at 12785 Greenwood Drive in about an hour, said Paul Spencer, spokesman for the Truckee Fire Protection District.

TFPD was dispatched to the house at about 10:21 a.m. Crews with Calfire and the Squaw Valley and Northstar fire departments also responded.

Damage to the structure is “extensive,” said Spencer.

Greenwood Drive was closed while crews extinguished the fire, the cause of which is under investigation.
