Arson investigators look into Fresno house fire

Saturday, May 19, 2012

The Fresno Fire Department brought arson investigators to the scene of a house fire on Kelso near Whitney in Northeast Fresno on Saturday.

Officials say neighbors noticed smoke and flames just before 9 a.m. and called 911. When fire fighters arrived they found the back of the home fully engulfed.

Investigators say the fire grew quickly and they were delayed in fighting it because a car was parked in front of a fire hydrant.

Eight people were displaced by the fire. The cause is still under investigation.
