Fresno firefighters were battling two fires that broke out almost simultaneously on opposite ends of the city on Thursday.
A second-alarm was called for a fire at 1852 S. Woodrow Ave. in southeast Fresno.
Fresno fire battalion chief Brian Price said the fire caused about $100,000 damage to the home.
When firefighters arrived, they found a garage and attic engulfed in flames, said Price. The residents escaped without injury.
The garage was being used for storage and the items inside made extinguishing the fire difficult, he said.
Fire trucks also had a difficult time navigating in the neighborhood because residents had stopped their cars in the roadway, Price said.
The fire was contained about 4:25 p.m. The cause is under investigation.
The second fire was reported in a palm tree near the corner of Chennault and Hazel avenues in northwest Fresno, causing concerns that it might spread to the roof and attic of a nearby home.
Both fires were reported just before 4 p.m.
