Officials Investigate Fire That Gutted Two-Story Redwood City Home

A fire destroyed a two-story home in Redwood City late Thursday.

Crews said the house, located on Crompton Road near Alameda de las Pulgas, was fully engulfed by the time they responded at 10:35 p.m. A live power line had snapped at the back of the property, officials said.

No one was home at the time. It took crews about one hour to control the flames. 

No one was injured, but numerous Redwood City firefighters were evaluated for possible smoke inhalation, officials said.

The cause and origin of the blaze are under investigation.
