OROVILLE — Rick Barthol lost his house and four animals when a fire Saturday morning took down his home while he and fiance Laura Sorenson were out to breakfast.

They left their 2020 Summit View home around 7:15 a.m., and neighbor Tom Rogers called Barthol at 10:22 a.m. to let them know their house was fully engulfed in flames.
