Fresno firefighters extinguished a house fire Wednesday at Inyo and B streets in southwest Fresno.
A Fresno Fire Department spokesman said the fire broke out in an unoccupied home. At the height of the fire the house was fully involved. Firefighters did not enter the structure because it was too dangerous.
Witnesses said they saw three teens run from the home shortly before flames erupted. Police detained several teenagers who were watching the blaze from across the street.
The house was assessed as a total loss.
