Officials said the fire started in a home behind another home.
“On the scene, we found a rear structure behind the main address structure that was well involved in fire,” Battalion Chief Javier Perez said at the scene. “We had flames through the roof. There was an occupant that exited the structure prior to both [police] and fire department arriving.”
