A second residential structure, an exposure to the first, was also involved along with fencing and trees when firefighters arrived. Despite being faced with two structures on fire crews were able to stop the spread of the fire to other homes in the area.

A well-coordinated fire attack led to rapid suppression and reduced the threat to the neighborhood. Grass Valley Engine 1 and a Cal Fire Engine successfully made access via Carpenter St., up a driveway and through a fence to access the rear of the homes on Forest Glade Cir.

Grass Valley Engine 2 and NCCFD Engine 84 along with remaining resources engaged the fire from Forest Glade Cir. Paramedics evaluated one patient for burns. Fire remains under investigation.
