Fresno man loses his home after overnight fire

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Fresno firefighters say the flames broke out inside the garage of a home on Broadway and Belmont just before midnight.

Authorities say the smoke and fire spread to a nearby apartment building and damaged one of the units. The man living there was told to move out for security reasons until the damages could be fixed.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but authorities are calling it suspicious. Fire officials say homeless people were living in the garage and similar fires have been reported in the area in the past month.

No one was hurt in the fire.
