A fast moving house fire destroyed a large residence on the Vista Ranch Road not far from Boonville Thursday morning. The destruction was so complete that the Fire Department called for an excavator after the fire was out. The Vista Ranch is a small sub-division east of Highway 128 opposite the Philo end of Anderson Valley Way. The fire was called in a little after 9:00 am Thursday morning. There were no injuries. The name of the property owner is not yet known and no cause has been established. Ammunition popping off during the blaze inspired wild rumors of an accompanying shootout with possible immigration agents. There was no shooting, no immigration agents, no injuries associated with the fire that totally consumed the home.
