Attic fire destroys Central Fresno home
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Firefighters managed to save most of a Central Fresno home after the attic went up in flames.
Fire crews found heavy smoke coming from the attic when they got to the house on Palm and Ashlan around 11 p.m. Friday.
Firefighters worked quickly to keep the flames from spreading to the rest of the home.
They say no one was inside at the time because the house was being renovated.
The cause of the fire appears to be electrical.
Investigators estimate the damage at around $50,000.
