A dryer fire inside a residential structure was contained to the dryer around 3 o’clock on Sunday afternoon in the Alta Sierra area. The occupant was at home in the 17900 Block of Alexandra Way, in Alta Sierra. The fire started and was able to extinguish most of the fire upon arrival of fire units. The dryer was removed from the residence and full extinguishment of the clothing within the dryer was completed. Firefighters removed the smoke from the house and had to remove a small area of sheetrock in the laundry room to make sure the fire did not travel into the attic area or nearby walls.
