VACAVILLE — A suburban neighborhood was shaken after a fire sent smoke and flames through the second-floor windows of a home, Saturday.
Firefighters responded to the 300 block of Potters Lane for a structure fire that was reported at 3:45 p.m.
Battalion Chief Phil Sanner said firefighters arrived to find a fire on the second floor with heavy smoke and flames. The blaze was upgraded to second alarm about 4 p.m.
All occupants were outside the house when firefighters conducted a search, and there were no injuries, he said. It took crews about 15 minutes to knock down the blaze.
Neighbors were gathered across the street as firefighters mopped up the scene. The second story’s scorched interior was visible through the shattered front window of the home. Sanner estimated the whole second floor was damaged.
Cheryl Cueva, who lives across the street, said initially she saw smoke coming out the front window. Her husband went inside to check on the family and get them out of there, she said.
“The flames were coming out pretty violently outside the master bedroom window,” said Cueva, adding that the bathroom window exploded.
Traffic was blocked from Potters Lane between Cogburn Way and Wimbledon Drive for at least an hour.
Sanner said it was too early to determine the cause of the fire.
