A grass fire caused damage to multiple homes and out-buildings and burned up to three acres in Visalia on Sunday.
The Visalia Fire Department responded to the blaze in a field adjacent to 4130 West Myrtle Street at 2:28 p.m.
First responders found the fire spreading across two to three acres and to fences, vehicles, out-buildings and a large shed. Due to an abundance of heavy fire embers, one two-story residential structure at 611 South Chinowth sustained a small roof fire.
Embers quickly spread across Chinowth and caused an additional residential structure’s roof to catch fire along with another grass fire.
Visalia fire officials estimated the fire caused approximately $100,000 in total damage.
The exact cause of the fire is undetermined, but it is currently under investigation.
No injuries were reported.
