Two house fires in Fresno kept fire crews busy Thursday morning, said Fresno fire spokesman Koby Johns.
The first fire ignited about 10:30 a.m. in east-central Fresno in the 4000 block of East Clay Avenue, where a detached garage was fully engulfed in flames, Johns said.
"The garage had been converted to a living space and one person was sleeping inside at the time the fire began," Johns said. The person was able to escape with no injuries but was later treated for difficulty breathing before being released.
The cause is undetermined and damage was estimated at $20,000. One of the other residents fainted when she saw the burned house but did not sustain any injuries.
The other fire started about 11 a.m. at a vacant house in the 2000 block of East Clay Avenue in central Fresno, Johns said. The blaze started in the closet and was confined to the room. The cause was undetermined and damage was estimated at $5,000. No injuries were reported, Johns said.
