A vehicle fire of a golf cart sparked a fire that damaged a fence and one Turlock residence, but quick actions kept it from spreading to another home, the Turlock Fire Department reported.

The fire was reported at 2:09 p.m. Friday at a home in the 3900 block of North Park Court.

It’s unknown what caused the golf cart to ignite, but the flames from it quickly spread to the adjacent fence. The growing flames were threatening the residence and the neighboring home, according to the fire department.

Firefighters made a quick attack on the fire and brought it under control before it could spread to the house next door and before it could cause severe damage to the residence.

Approximately 30 feet of fence was destroyed as well as damage to the side of the house and garage side door of the residence.

“Quick actions by City Firefighters kept property damage costs to a minimum and saved valuable real estate,” said Turlock Fire Chief Robert Talloni.

In all, three Engines, one Truck, one Battalion Chief, the Fire Marshal, two Division Chiefs and the Fire Chief from Turlock City Fire responded to the incident, for a total of 16 firefighters. Turlock Rural Fire provided city coverage while all Turlock City resources were committed on the scene.
