A home in the 2100 block of San Luis Road in Walnut Creek was heavily damaged by smoke and flame Wednesday. Firefighters conducted an extensive search for the homeowners but, in the end, everyone emerged safe and there were no reports of injuries.
Firefighters were called to the residence near the Briones-Mt. Diablo Regional Trail at 11:31 a.m. after neighbors reported flames coming from the roof. The first emergency crews on the scene found the residence fully engulfed by flame. Reports that an interior search of the home may have uncovered an occupant were not immediately confirmed.
