Two-Alarm Fire Hits La Honda

Firefighters battle unpaved roads to reach blaze in remote location.

A two-alarm fire damaged a home in the hills of San Mateo County on Wednesday evening, fire officials said.

Crews responded to a report of fire at a two-story house on Hildebrand Road, near Highway 84 in La Honda, at about 6:25 p.m., according to Cal Fire.

The first firefighters at the scene found the fire burning on the second floor of the home and in an attic area.

Fire crews were met with challenges including low-hanging branches and unpaved roads, which made it difficult to reach the remote location, Cal Fire officials said.

No one was injured, and the fire was contained in about 15 minutes.

Crews remained at the scene for more than six hours.

Firefighters from Cal Fire, the La Honda Fire Brigade, Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade, Coastside Fire Protection District and Woodside Fire Protection District responded to the blaze.

The cause remains under investigation.
