Firefighters were called to a blaze at an abandoned home in Thermalito Sunday afternoon. According to fire officials, the flames were first spotted around 3:00pm by a neighbor. They say the home was part of a small subdivision on Bluff Road that had been foreclosed before any of the homes were sold, more than a decade earlier. Transients were known to use them, despite windows and doors being boarded up. No one was injured. Fire officials say transients likely started the fire, then escaped.
