Major Damage to North Highlands Home Caused by Arson

North Highlands, CA – At 10:00 AM on April 28, 2015, Metro Fire crews were dispatched to a house on the 6800 block of Silverthorne Circle in North Highlands for multiple reports of fire. The home, which was for sale, was well-involved with fire when crews arrived. Firefighters quickly initiated fire attack and searched for occupants, while other crews deployed hoselines to protect the nearby exposures.

An aggressive fire attack allowed the single-alarm assignment to contain the fire to the home of origin, saving adjacent homes. The two-story house sustained roughly $300,000 in damage. Nobody was home at the time of the fire and no civilians or firefighter injuries were reported.

Arson Investigators were called to the scene and determined that the fire was intentionally set. Witnesses reported seeing three teenage males, who do not live at the residence, running away during the early stages of the fire. Anyone with any information regarding this fire is asked to call Metro Fire's anonymous Arson Tipline at (916) 859-3775.
