WILDOMAR – A fire damaged a two-story home in Wildomar Thursday, Dec. 15, and displaced a family of seven, who escaped the flames unscathed.
The blaze was reported about 2 p.m. in the 21000 block of Amethyst Road, just off Canyon Crest Street, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.
The blaze was fully contained within 20 minutes by about 20 firefighters. However, due to the extent of damage to the property, the occupants – two adults and their five children – were forced to find alternate living arrangements, according to the fire department.
American Red Cross workers were summoned to assist the family.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
