One person was detained Sunday in connection with a house fire that broke out about 6:45 p.m. in the 500 block of Tulare Street in southwest Fresno, fire Battalion Chief Todd Tuggle said.
A man was arrested at the scene in connection with the fire. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Tuggle said.
The fire began the home’s garage before spreading to the attic and living space, Tuggle said. Six engines and two trucks were needed to combat the blaze, but firefighters managed to save most of the home’s contents.
The home’s three adult occupants escaped unharmed, Tuggle said. The Red Cross was expected to provide emergency shelter.
