A fire ties up the Chico Fire Department Thursday in the California Park section of Chico. It took firefighters about an hour and a half to bring a fire at a home under control at Laguna Point Road. Chico Fire Inspector Marie Fickert says firefighters faced a challenge because of the U-shape design of the house. She says no one was hurt and there was no damage to surrounding houses. The fire was first reported just after 11 after it was noticed by a pool maintenance person. Meanwhile, a vegetation fire that broke out in the Lindo Channel in Chico Thursday night was quickly extinguished. Officials say the fire burned a quarter acre.
