SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Firefighters have stumbled upon a possible marijuana growing operation inside a home that caught fire early Wednesday morning.

Sacramento Fire Department crews showed up to a home on Kennelford Circle, next to Valley High Park, around 2:30 a.m. to try to put out a garage fire at a home. Intense heat and modifications to the home, including bars on the windows and locks on the doors, complicated firefighting efforts.

Once inside, crews reportedly found tools that suggested a pot-growing operation was going on.

No one was home at the time of the fire, and the exact cause is still under investigation.

Neighbors reportedly saw people filling a pickup truck parked in front of the home with contents from the garage before the fire started.
