The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) reported on their Twitter page that it was a 2 alarm blaze and that it was knocked down at 1:28 pm. by 23 firefighters.
The fire started inside the home but the OCFA’s investigators are still not clear as to where exactly it started. The fire was prevented from spreading to neighboring buildings but some wires did fall around the home.
In total there were four adults and five kids at the home. The OCFA reported that none of them were injured and none of the firefighters were injured as well.
Unfortunately two parakeets died.
The family received assistance from local Red Cross officials once the fire was over.
The OCFA did not release an estimate of the total cost of the damage.
