Possible pot-growing operation found at house fire near Riverside

Riverside County firefighters contained a fire at a house that detectives are investigating as a possible site for a marijuana-growing operation.

The fire broke out about 12:30 a.m. in the abandoned home on the 7500 block of Reche Canyon Road, northeast of the city of Riverside, according to a Riverside County Fire Department report.

No one was hurt fighting the blaze, which consumed the house.

Detectives, however, are “investigating it as a possible marijuana grow,” said Sgt. Joe Borja, a spokesman for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
