Pioneer House Fire Seriously Burns Victim

A house fire in Pioneer on Robin Lane around 5:45 Friday, Jan. 2,    injured one woman, whose name has not been released. Arriving firefighters discovered the victim as they arrived to battle the blaze. She had been pulled from the flames by a neighbor. She was transported by ambulance to the Pine Grove Camp and subsequently taken by air ambulance to the UC Davis Burn Center. The home was seriously damaged by the flames and an investigator called in to help determine the cause of the blaze has not yet come up with a cause for the fire. At least sixteen fire personnel from the Amador Fire Protection District, Cal Fire, Sutter Creek Fire Protection District and the City of Ione Fire Department responded to the incident. According to AFPD Chief Ted Jagoda, upon arrival, fire crews found roughly 40 percent of the single-story, single-family house well involved in fire. A combination interior and exterior attack was conducted to attempt to isolate the spread in the home and to protect the neighboring house. The fire did spread to attached wood fencing/ decking and a shed. The neighboring house was successfully protected without any fire damage. Due to the amount of resources committed to the incident, additional staffing was called in to back fill Amador Fire stations to enable response to other emergencies. Amador Fire is still investigating the cause of the fire.
