Fire destroyed a house in the Blue Valley subdivision in Evergreen on Tuesday afternoon, after the home's residents were forced to evacuate.

No injuries occurred in the blaze at 101 Bluebell Lane, which was reported about 2:15 p.m. The house was engulfed in flames when firefighters from the Clear Creek Fire Authority and Evergreen Fire/Rescue arrived, the Clear Creek Sheriff's Office reported.

A pellet stove was being investigated as a possible cause of the fire, according to Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege.

The home was reported to be a total loss, but no other structures were affected. That neighborhood, in Clear Creek County, was under a red-flag fire warning on Tuesday because of dry conditions.
