CLEARLAKE OAKS – A Sunday night fire destroyed a large barn that had been used an a walnut dryer.


The fire took place on Sulphur Bank Drive, according to Aaron Stewart, who lives next door to the building.


Stewart said he was sleeping when the fire broke out, and awakened at about 1:30 a.m. when either a small propane tank or the fuel tank of one of two classic cars stored inside the building exploded and shook his house.


Calls to Northshore Fire Protection District's Clearlake Oaks station were not returned Monday. Northshore Fire Chief Jim Robbins said he had not yet received a full report on the incident from the crew, who had been out all night on the fire.


Stewart managed to capture a short video of the fire as it was dying down; see it at www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKSzWpH4bvc.
