When firefighters arrived at the 11100 of Mohawk Road near Viento Road, they found a portion of the house engrossed in heavy fire.

A person in the home required transportation by ground ambulance to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center after sustaining burns from falling debris.

The Apple Valley Fire Department was also witnessed carrying out an armful of presents, already wrapped up for the holiday, safely out of the home.

A utility company was dispatched to secure the electrical system.
