BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A messy home made for difficult conditions during an early-morning fire in Northwest Bakersfield.
The fire started at approximately 2:00 a.m. Tuesday in the attic of a small house on Gulf Street.
Firefighters with the Kern County Fire Department said they had a hard time locating the home's address. The house was built in a primarily industrial area north of Gilmore Drive and west of Highway 99.
When crews arrived on-scene, they said the firefighting effort was made difficult because the home was cluttered with lots of items.
A woman living inside the home managed to escape unharmed. No firefighters were injured in the blaze, and there is no estimate on damages.
