A large column of smoke spotted in Vallejo called for a massive response from fire officials Saturday afternoon on the 200 block of Cassidy Street.
The fire originated in the backyard of a single family home, Capt. Kevin Brown of Vallejo Fire Department told NBC Bay Area.
Brown said the five-alarm fire has been knocked down as of 1:40 p.m. but crews were expected to be on scene for two more hours. The home was completely destroyed, Brown said.
Three neighboring homes were affected but with minimal damage, according to Brown, and a two-story apartment complex nearby had to be evacuated.
There were no reports of injuries.
No other information was available.
