Authorities are still working to figure out what started a fire that ripped through an abandoned home in Thermalito Sunday night.

Firefighters said the home is part of a small foreclosed subdivision on Bluffs Drive.

The homes were built about a decade ago, but never sold.

Investigators said they've been boarded-up nuisances ever since.

Firefighters said transients break into them all the time... and they suspect transients started yesterday's fire.

No one was hurt.

Meanwhile, crews battled another blaze in Oroville Sunday night. Firefighters responded to a fire at home on the 800 block of Mission Olive Road.

They were able to put out the fire in the attic by 3:30 this morning.
