The Turlock Fire Department responded to a fire Tuesday night at a home that has burned on at least three previous occasions in the past three years.
The fire was deemed suspicious because the vacant home in the 800 block of West Main Street has been boarded up and without gas or electricity for some time.
The first crews on scene found a fire in the home’s basement that had spread through holes in the floor to the main level. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to get the blaze under control.
Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call investigator Alvord at the Turlock Fire Department at (209) 668-5580.
