Thirty-two firefighters responded to an early morning structure fire on Saturday that destroyed a two-story home under construction in Paso Robles.
Firefighters responded to a report of a residential structure fire at 12:13 a.m. and found the home fully engulfed in flames, according to a news release. The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
The structure was located directly behind an existing residence at 612 Olive St., and the fire was rapidly spreading into neighboring residences. The fire was declared contained at 1:16 a.m. and under control at 2 a.m., though firefighters’ efforts were hindered by live power lines down near the fire.
According to a city news release, the two-story home under construction was a total loss and the existing residence had significant fire damage. Several other adjoining properties were damaged from the radiant heat generated by the blaze.
