Fire at Rohnert Park townhouse complex displaces two families

A fire that ignited Monday at a townhouse complex in Rohnert Park caused about $200,000 in damage and left two families without access to their homes, fire officials said.

A 911 caller reported the blaze in the 5000 block of Country Club Drive at about 1:45 p.m., according to a Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety report.

Firefighters from Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa and the Sonoma County and Rancho Adobe fire districts were dispatched to the four-home complex.

Flames were coming from the roof of the middle two homes when firefighters arrived, according to the report.

Nobody was inside any of the homes, officials said.

Firefighters got the blaze under control in about 10 minutes and the homes on either end of the complex were not significantly damaged, according to the report.

Fire officials said they were investigating the cause of the blaze on Tuesday.

The American Red Cross and property managers for the complex were working with the two displaced families, according to the report.
