The State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating a fire that destroyed a home in Mound House Monday morning.

The fire started just before 10am on Calcite Drive near Red Rock Road.

Firefighters with the Central Lyon County Fire Protection District say when they arrived on scene, they found the house fully engulfed in flames.

They say all four adults that were inside the home safely evacuated the premises, although two of them were transported to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.

Firefighters say the occupants and neighbors reported hearing several explosions preceding reports of the fire.

They added firefighting efforts were temporarily hampered by a live downed wire and a leaking pressurized gas line.

Crews are working to prevent any rekindle of the fire due to gusty winds.

The American Red Cross has been requested to help the occupants.
