Two-alarm fire destroys Atherton home
With the attic fire extinguished, firefighters from Menlo Park, Woodside and Redwood City concentrated on putting out the hidden fires under the shingles by soaking and pulling down suspect wood rafters. Thick smoke from the fire blanketed the grounds on Odell Place and obscured traffic at El Camino Real and Atherton Avenue, said Chief Harold Schapelhouman of the Menlo Park Fire Protection District.
