Two people died in a two-story house fire in Frazier Park early Sunday morning, according to the Kern County Fire Department news release.
The Kern County Fire Department responded to a call for a house fire at approximately 5:30 a.m. to the 500 block of Truman Avenue, the news release said.
Shortly after the crew of more than 20 arrived, the roof of the home collapsed and a defensive fire attack was initiated, the release said.
Three neighboring houses became threatened and were evacuated. Firefighters stopped the grass fire with only approximately 1/10th of an acre and two pine trees burned, the release said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation and the total loss of the house was $300,000. No firefighting personnel was injured, the release said.
