A Bass Lake home went up in flames early Monday morning, causing worry in the neighborhood that there may be evacuations, according to a neighbor.
CalFire units were dispatched just before 1:30 a.m. and the house was completely involved in flames when they arrived, said Cal Fire spokesperson Jaime Williams.
Neighbor Bill Atwood said he woke up to noise around 1:30 a.m. and saw the house on North Shore Road in flames. “We got a reverse 911 call that there was a potential evacuation,” he said.
Atwood said he and his wife started to prepare, but he noticed the wind was very still outside, and firefighters were able to gain control of the fire and extinguish it.

The fire was controlled at around 6 a.m. and the cause remains under investigation, Williams said.
It destroyed the home, two outbuildings and damaged a neighbor’s house. Atwood said several people were vacationing at the home, but all got out safely.
Williams confirmed and said there were no injuries in relation to the fire.
