Man tries to extinguish house fire with garden hose before crews arrive

Firefighters responded Friday to a residential structure fire in Santa Rosa that displaced one person.

The Santa Rosa Fire Department responded Friday at 6:33 p.m. to a fire at 639A Tupper St. and found smoke coming from a small home on fire behind the main house.

Crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.

The only resident of the home was a man who told investigators he left the residence and returned to a fire inside. He attempted to extinguish the blaze himself with a garden hose before crews arrived.

Investigators determined the cause of the fire was accidental.

The fire did an estimated $40,000 in damage to the structure and contents, and the home was deemed uninhabitable. The American Red Cross responded to assist the displaced man.
