Right now, Fresno firefighters are investigating a suspicious fire in the Tower district.
It happened after three this morning at a house on Thomas avenue and Fulton. A neighbor says he heard explosions, went outside and saw the house on the fire. Firefighters arrived and found the two story home up in flames. They also got reports that a woman could be heard screaming inside the house, but crews didn’t find anyone.
Firefighters say it was a vacant home. The fire burned the roof, both floors of the home and the basement. They tell us there’s evidence the fire started either on the first floor or the basement.
