SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A house in South Sacramento was heavily damaged after a fire broke out early Monday morning.
Firefighters were called to the home on Moorefield Way at 1:40 a.m. When they arrived, they found the front part of the home in flames.
Firefighters had to leave the home after a portion of the home’s tile roof collapsed. The fire did not spread to nearby structures.
A witness says the fire may have broken out under the porch, something arson investigators at the home have not confirmed.
Three residents inside the home, and their dog, were able to get out safely before firefighters arrived.
“Me and my dad tried to put out the fire with the hose, but it didn’t work. My mom was downstairs calling 911. As the fire got too big, we told her to get out of the house so she dropped the phone and grabbed the dog and we all got out,” said Jesse Chan, who lives at the home.
Fire crews have had to battle an unusually high number of fires over the last 24 hours.
