Home northwest of Lake Elsinore burns

LAKE ELSINORE – Riverside County firefighters worked today to safeguard structures in an unincorporated area in the hills northwest of Lake Elsinore while letting a noninjury fire at a home burn itself out.

They were called at 10:48 p.m. Sunday to the the 30300 block of Ainsworth Place, where flames were shooting from the roof and out of the attic of a multilevel 5,000 square-foot home when they arrived, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann said.

A second alarm was declared, and the incident commander requested additional units, increasing the contingent at the scene to 36 firefighters with 10 engines, she said.

The home was safely evacuated and no injuries were reported, Hagemann said.
