Fire Damages House in Santa Rosa

A loud pop and the smell of smoke alerted a west Santa Rosa woman early Tuesday that her Peterson Lane home was on fire.

“I could smell it. I opened the door and saw flames coming at us. I ran out of the house and called 911,” said the woman who declined to give her name.

“My hands were shaking so bad I could hardly call,” she said.

Emergency fire dispatchers got the call at 6:56 a.m.

Santa Rosa fire crews responded and had the fire under control by 7:13 a.m., according to dispatch reports.

Santa Rosa fire Capt. Sage Howell said firefighters found heavy black smoke in the home as they arrived.

Firefighters quickly shut down the fire and the flames were held to a bedroom where the problem started.

A fire investigator Tuesday morning was attempting to determine what happened.

As well as the fire damage in the bedroom, there was substantial smoke damage throughout the home, Howell said. Fire officials estimated the fire caused about $35,000 in damage.

Peterson Lane was closed temporarily while firefighters worked, allowing for hose lines and engines.

The fire was near the Guerneville Road end of Peterson Lane.
