A fire on the 1400 block of Almond Avenue south of Patterson gutted a home Monday afternoon, Feb. 11, and kept firefighters occupied for several hours.

All the residents in the home were able to escape, but the house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.

While the cause of the 2 p.m. blaze had yet to be determined as of 2:30 p.m. Monday, Patterson Division Chief Jeff Breasher said the fire did not seem suspicious.

Firefighters worked for more than a half hour getting the fire under control before getting to the "mop-up" phase of extinguishing the fire completely. Several holes in the walls of the house provided a glimpse to the extensive damage inside.

The Irrigator will have an update when more details become available.
