Brady says the fire started around 1 a.m., in a house on Turre Street. When fire crews arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames. Brady says multiple departments responded and are helping the investigation including the Yreka City Fire Department, South Yreka Fire Department, Montague Fire Department, CALFIRE, Mt. Shasta ambulance and Yreka Police Department.
The house was a complete loss, but the fire was contained roughly an hour after it broke out. She says officials are still looking into the cause.
No descriptors of the deceased were available.
