A fire that ignited in a kitchen swept through the rest of the home, causing extensive damage and leaving five people displaced, the Turlock Fire Department reported.

The fire was reported at 7:26 a.m. Monday at a home in the 200 block of Davis Street.

Firefighters were dispatched to the home and while in route learned there was a large column of thick, black smoke coming from the residence and that an individual was running in and out of the home, said Turlock Fire spokesman Capt. Jason Bernard.

All the occupants were out of the home when the first firefighters arrived. Turlock Fire responded to the incident with three engines, Squad 32, a battalion chief, and two division chiefs. In total, 22 firefighters were on-scene as well as crews from AMR and units from the Turlock Police Department. Additional MST resources included one engine and a battalion chief while one engine from Turlock Rural Fire Department provided city coverage.

The fire was brought under control within 30 minutes and was contained to the house of origin.

The fire began in the kitchen and then extended into the living quarters and attic space of the single-family residence.

The fire displaced four adults and one minor. The American Red Cross responded to the fire and is working with the family to assist with housing. No injuries were reported for this incident.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Stanislaus Regional Fire Investigation Unit.
