A fire damaged the living room of a home at 1161 California St. early Tuesday.

The fire was apparently found by a woman who had just gotten home and noticed smoke in the house, said Fire Chief Steve Wakefield.

It started in a couch in the living room, he said.


The investigation of the cause was handed over to the Crescent City Police Department.

The fire was contained in the living room, leaving minor water and smoke damage, Wakefield said.

The Crescent City Volunteer Fire Department, Crescent Fire Protection District and Cal Fire responded.
