All Turlock Fire Department resources plus those from neighboring departments were called out to battle a blaze on East Avenue in an effort to keep the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 1600 block of East Avenue just after midnight on Monday. The report was for a structure fire and the first firefighters to arrive at the scene found a heavy amount of flames coming from the rear of the residence.

Through the mutual aid sharing agreement three additional engines, a quint and a battalion chief were dispatched to the scene.

The combined resources made a united attack on the fire and were eventually able to bring it under control after an extended period of time, according to the fire department.

The Stanislaus County Fire Investigation Unit responded to the scene to determine the cause of the fire.
