PERRIS: Structure Fire

Early Tuesday morning November 27, 2018 Cal Fire / Riverside County Fire responded to multiple reports of a house fire with power lines down. The fire was reported at at about 12:39am in the 1700 block of Amethyst Drive. The first arriving engine company reported a double wide mobile home with smoke and fire showing from one side. Firefighters attempted to make access to the fire however, were hampered by downed power lines. Southern California Edison was requested to the scene to de-energize the power lines. Once Firefighters were able to make access, it was determined two out building; a shed and another structure, possibly a converted living space, were well involved with fire. The fire did cause some damage to the main residence. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined. No injuries were reported and it appears the residence may have been vacant and being used by squatters.
