Five people were displaced by a two-alarm house fire in east-central Fresno on Father’s Day.
A little after 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Fresno Fire Department and Clovis Fire Department responded to the fire on the 4000 block of East San Gabriel Avenue, said Fresno Battalion Chief Robert Camp.
Initial crews went into a rescue operation as soon as they arrived and extracted one person who was still in the home. The occupant was examined by a medical unit for smoke inhalation but released.
By 5:20 p.m units had the fire under control. The flames caused significant damage to the attic and roof of the home causing the house to be unlivable. Thirty-three firefighters were called to the scene. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
