“The owner and occupants were not on the premises at the time of the fire,” Stan Lantis, Pomona fire chief, said. “[The home was] fully engulfed on our arrival.
No injuries resulted from the fire, and damage did not extend beyond the structure of origin, Lantis said. Hermreck was living in the house with his wife and children, he said.
The home was for sale and listed between $120,000 and $125,000, Hall said.
The Pomona Fire Department responded with mutual aid from Williamsburg and Lincoln-Ottawa-Harrison Fire departments.
