While fire crews were attempting to control the fire, firefighters located what appeared to be a possible grow house using “illegal electricity.”

The fire was brought under control in within 30 minutes and no one was home at the time of the blaze.

One firefighter was treated at the scene after drywall fell from the ceiling and struck him in the head. No other injuries were reported.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies and a fire investigator were contacted to assist in the investigation. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
