Backyard barbecue blamed for Los Altos Hills house fire

 

The residents of a Los Altos Hills home have been displaced after fire spread from a backyard barbecue to a garage and into the attic Monday.

The Santa Clara County Fire Department was notified shortly after 5 p.m. about the fire at 11000 block of Arroyo Oaks Drive and arrived to find the garage on fire. Two residents who were home at the time had safely evacuated.

The blaze was extinguished in about 30 minutes.

The department advises residents to keep barbecues attended and at least 10 feet away from a home or combustible materials.
