A house went up in flames in east Redding on Saturday. Shortly after 11am Redding Firefighters arrived to find the house fully involved in flames. It was located behind homes on Reservoir Lane with other houses on Irwin Lane in close proximity. All the city’s fire resources were called to assist. The house was boarded up and had long been unoccupied, but a hoarder had apparently lived there at one time as a lot of belongings were packed inside, providing fuel and getting in the way. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
