A house on fire in the 11 thousand block of Gold Digger Way off Red Dog Road about a mile and a half east of Nevada City is now under control. A couple and their three young boys were in the home when the father noticed smoke in the second story of the 3,100 square foot home.
The homeowner called 9-1-1 around 7:40 a.m this morning and seven fire engines responded from Nevada City and Nevada County Consolidated. The family will not be able to return to the home as fire damage was extensive. Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading into the wooded acreage beyond the structure.
