BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Fire Department was called to the 3800 block of Shenandoah Drive, Sunday evening, when a large structure fire was first reported, according to the BFD.
Several firefighters arrived at approximately 6:35 p.m. to find an attic and structure engulfed in fire.
The fire Captain said it took them approximately 40 minutes to contain due to "hoarder-like conditions" that made it difficult to see where the fire was located inside the structure.
A couple of power lines were reportedly down, making it more difficult for crews to work through the fire and place hose lines.
The BFD said the fire caused around $150k to $200k in damages to the structure and its contents.
No injuries were reported. An arson investigation will continue once the fire is completely cleared.
