A fire engulfed an abandoned home northeast of Caruthers around 4 p.m. Saturday.
Firefighters received a call about 4:10 p.m. that the single-story 1,800-square-foot home was ablaze on the 10000 block of South Chestnut Avenue near Huntsman Avenue, said Cal Fire Capt. Ryan Michaels.
Chestnut Avenue is currently blocked north and south of the fire.
The fire was fully involved when firefighters arrived and several of the building’s walls collapsed, Michaels said.
Never miss a local story.
The fire is now under control but was still burning about 4:30 p.m. Michaels said firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to a nearby home. No one was injured and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
