Abandoned Home Destroyed By Fire In Anderson

A two story house in Anderson was destroyed by fire Sunday. Cal-Fire/Shasta County Fire along with Anderson, Happy Valley and Cottonwood Firefighters arrived to the house off Highway 273 to find it fully involved with fire. Interior access was difficult for firefighters because of piled up trash and other materials. The vacant house had already been considered uninhabitable and was condemned by county code enforcement due to code violations and alleged criminal activity. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
