Firefighters say the heavy flames came from the attic and caused it to partially collapse.
Sacramento Fire Captian Keith Wade said it appeared that the older style construction of the building did not follow the fire safety codes like newer buildings.
Firefighters remained on the scene for several hours to prevent any flare-ups.
