Desert Hot Springs, CA

A fire engulfed a Desert Hot Springs home Thursday and caused minor damage to two adjacent structures, but no injuries were reported.

The blaze was reported at 12:21 p.m. in the 12000 block of Pomelo Drive, said Tawny Cabral of the Riverside County Fire Department. Twenty firefighters were dispatched on a report of a single-story home “well involved with fire” and had the flames contained by 12:51 p.m., she said.

There was no immediate word on what sparked the fire, which caused an estimated $250,000 in damage to the residence and minor damage to the adjacent structures, Cabral said.
