Apartment fire leaves 20 without a home

Sunday, June 20, 2010

Twenty people have been displaced after an apartment building near Caruthers caught fire overnight.

It happened in the 7700 block of south Henderson northwest of Caruthers.

Fresno county Cal-Fire provided these pictures of the flames coming out of the building. It took about 25 firefighters from Fresno and Kings Counties to get the fire under control.

Five units in the building were completely destroyed but a fire wall in attic stopped the fire from spreading to the other three units.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and damage is estimated at $200,000.

Red Cross is providing assistance to residents displaced because of the fire.
