Lubben, 49 was home at the time, but escaped without serious injury.
The man living the house connected to hers, a pregnant woman and an infant were airlifted from 45117 Balch Park Road near Highway 190 to a local hospital for treatment of burn injuries.
Sources in Springville say that the suspected cause of the fire, now under investigation, is a drug lab explosion.
Last June, Lubben sold the property to Sijoe Carmona, a convicted drug offender from Visalia and Ivanhoe, Calif., but Lubben stayed on as a tenant
The property was recently placed back on the market.
The residence was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived, and they took a defensive position to keep the flames from spreading into the forest.
Shelley Lubben has reportedly lost everything but her jeep and the pajamas she was wearing at the time of the blaze.

The Fresno Bee reports that Joe Rosa, a spokesman for the Tulare County Fire Department, said both fire and fire Tulare County Sheriff's investigators are on scene.
According to sheriff's spokeswoman Ashley Ritchie, butane canisters were found in the home, so authorities were investigating it as a place where a honey-oil lab might have been set up. Ritchie said detectives were working to get a search warrant so they could go inside the residence.
Honey oil is manufactured with the used of butane, and powerful explosions can result when fumes from the gas come in contact with a flame source, such as a hot water heater.
In describing the injured people at the home when the fire broke out, Ritchie said: "The male suspect, 36 years old, is currently in critical condition. A 25-year-old pregnant woman is in fair condition. And a 2-year-old is in critical condition."
She said they were transported to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno for treatment.
The fire represents just the latest dramatic event in the scandal-plagued life of Shelley Lubben.
Born Shelley Lynn Moore in Pasadena, Calif. in 1968, Lubben struggled with alcoholism and substance abuse since her teens, and often found herself in trouble with the law. In 1986, at age 18, she was asked to leave home by her long-suffering parents, and found work as a stripper, prostitute and small-time con artist in the Los Angeles area. Lubben has proudly referred to herself as a "hustler" and "professional liar" who could talk her way out of anything.
In 1988, she gave birth to a daughter she says was conceived via a prostitution act.
An admitted attention seeker, Lubben failed in her attempt to launch an acting career, then dabbled in pornography from 1993 - 94.
When porn stardom eluded her, and her drug and alcohol use spiraled out of control, she married Garrett Lubben.
In 2004, Lubben re-emerged as a Christian anti-porn/anti-sex work crusader, complete with a set of horror stories about her short time in porn that no one -- even the people she knew at the time -- had ever heard before. Similarly, her tales about her early life were eventually contradicted by evidence provided by family.
In 2008, she and Garrett founded Pink Cross Foundation, "a faith-based public charity dedicated to reaching out to adult industry workers offering emotional, financial and transitional support."
However PCF never yielded a roster of success stories; instead, the vast majority of the women who associated with Lubben later described her as a manipulator and abuser who was addled by wine and prescription pills, and who misused funds donated to help the women in her care.
Lubben surrounded herself with bizarre individuals with claims that were provably false, and anti-porn evangelists such as Donny Pauling, who was later unmasked as a serial child molester.

Lubben also practiced a strange and fanatical version of Christianity.
She claimed to be the reincarnation of the Prophet Elijah, and allowed herself to be filmed praying with an 8-foot staff.
On April 26, 2011, Lubben attended a Porn Star Karaoke event in Burbank, Cailf., and was photographed smiling while having her surgically-enhanced breast signed by hirsute porn star Ron Jeremy outside the bar's toilet.
Lubben's outrageous behavior, obsessive self-promotion as an anti-porn advocate, and trips to rehab centers and psych wards, took a toll on her marriage and family.
In 2015, Garrett and Shelley placed their Bakersfield McMansion up for sale and Shelley moved out to the country, to Springville, in California's Tulare County, while Garrett remained in Bakersfield so that the couple's youngest daughter wouldn't have to change schools.
Garrett's hope was that the new surroundings would help Shelley cut back on her immense daily alcohol and prescription drug consumption. However, when Garrett came to visit, he found the residence littered with empty wine bottles, and additional pill bottles.
During a visit on September 8, 2015, Garrett was arrested for alleged domestic violence by Tulare County Sheriffs on the basis of a 911 call from Shelley. Garrett was charged with Infliction of Corporal Injury on a Spouse/Cohabitant -- a charge which is demonstrably out of character for the notably even-tempered businessman.
On Oct. 13, 2015, five days after being arrested a second time at the ranch following another 911 call by Shelley, Garrett filed for a legal separation in Bakersfield.
The following month, Shelley admitted to a months-long extra-marital affair with ranch employee Joe Valley.
On Christmas Eve 2015, she had Valley arrested on charges of rape and domestic battery, but later withdrew the rape allegation.
Just after the new year, with her face still swollen, Lubben announced the shuttering of Pink Cross Foundation.
On March 14, 2016 Garrett amended his petition to Dissolution of Marriage (divorce).
However, in February 2017, following hysterical testimony from Shelley, Judge Michael B. Sheltzer ruled that the video clips did NOT show an attempt to bribe Mrs. Lubben and all charges were dismissed.
In July 2016, Garrett Lubben filed for a restraining order against Shelley in Bakersfield, Calif.
All domestic violence charges against Garrett Lubben were dropped last month.
Lubben also filed multiple domestic violence charges against Joe Valley, who has spent every birthday in jail since becoming involved with Shelley Lubben.
Following each release, Valley moved back in to the Lubben Ranch.
But in November of last year, he was arrested on the property after allegedly striking and killing a cyclist on the way home to the ranch, while intoxicated.
Valley is currently being held on $145,000 bail as he awaits trial for Gross Vehicular Manslaughter while Intoxicated, and fleeing the scene of the hit-and-run collision.
He is expected to plead guilty in Tulare County Superior Court on March 20. Valley faces 11 years in prison.
