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.
