LAKE ELSINORE – Flames tore through the roof and attic of a hillside home that burned last week in Lake Elsinore, a spokeswoman said today.
The blaze was reported Nov. 25 shortly before 11 p.m. at the multi-level home in the 30300 block of Ainsworth Place, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Jody Hagemann said. News about last week’s fire wasn’t made public until today.
The incident commander called for a second alarm when the fire became difficult to contain in the 4,000-square foot structure. No one was hurt but Hagemann reported that the blaze — whose origin was electrical in nature — caused an estimated $800,000 in damages.
Two residents were displaced.
