Fire damages home near Del Rey

Four people are displaced after a fire damaged their house Wednesday northwest of Del Rey.

The fire started around 8:30 p.m. in a house near Central and Temperance avenues, but the cause of the fire is unknown, Fresno County Fire spokesman Capt. Ryan Michaels said.

The garage was on fire when firefighters arrived, Michaels said, and everyone escaped without injuries.

The house is significantly damaged, but the exact dollar amount of the damage is not known, Michaels said.

The family had difficulty communicating with firefighters because of language barriers, but they are being assisted by the Red Cross, Michaels said.
