SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento home thought to be vacant was heavily damaged by fire on Friday.
Fire crews were alerted to the fire at a two-story home on 7331 Gardner Avenue at 6:30 a.m. after flames could be seen coming from the windows.
Firefighters first went inside the home to search for residents, but were forced out as the roof began to collapse and the second floor joists began to burn.
Officials say adverse weather conditions combined with boarded-up windows on the home, and the absence of a nearby hydrant made fighting the fire difficult. Crews were able to contain the fire to the home.
Damage is estimated to be between $300,000 and $350,000
