A unoccupied house undergoing renovations in north Palo Alto caught fire early Wednesday in a wall where plumbing work had been done earlier, according to fire officials.
The fire was reported as "smoke in the area" at 1:57 a.m. Wednesday (Aug. 4) in the 1400 block of Dana Avenue. Firefighters discovered flames come from a floor and wall where the plumbing work was done.
The fire was extinguished within 30 minutes and there was no structural damage to the house, officials reported.
In addition to two fire engines and other vehicles, a mutual-aid engine from the Menlo Park Fire Protection District were dispatched, but the Menlo engine was canceled en route.
