The fire was reported just before 11 p.m. Thursday, at a home in the 33600 block of Magnetite Street, according to Riverside County Fire Department Spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson.

Nearly two dozen firefighters responded to the incident, and had the blaze contained within approximately 30 minutes, according to Hendrickson.
