Kingsbury Grade home burns on Carson Valley side
October 28, 2008
An early morning fire on Sunday destroyed a Kingsbury Grade home on the Carson Valley side of the mountain.
No one was inside the 4,000-square-foot residence, located at 1266 Kingsbury Grade, when someone reported it to authorities at around 3 a.m.
Firefighters from all over the Valley responded to the three-alarm fire, according to East Fork Fire Captain Terry Taylor.
The structure and entire contents were destroyed.
“The house survived the Autumn Hills fire, but not this,” Taylor said. “They’ve been left with the clothes on their backs and the cars they were driving.”
The fire appears to have originated in the basement and spread upward into the rest of the home, but its cause is being investigated, he added.
