By Bay City News

Three structures burned in a three-alarm fire outside of Santa Rosa Thursday evening, leaving at least three people displaced, a Sonoma County fire dispatcher said.

The fire was reported at 5:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Ward Road on the south end of Santa Rosa, the dispatcher said.

Three different structures burned, including at least one home, and it took firefighters nearly two hours to bring the fire under control.

Seven different fire agencies responded to the blaze.

The fire caused extensive damage to all three structures, leaving at least three adult residents displaced in its wake, the dispatcher said. An ambulance was called for an unspecified injury and that person was treated at the scene.

There were initial reports of power lines coming down in the area, and firefighters are investigating that as a possible cause, the dispatcher said.

The California Highway Patrol closed Santa Rosa Avenue between East Robles Avenue and Bucks Road while firefighters worked to bring the blaze under control.
