Just before 6:30 p.m., Monday evening, firefighters responded to the area of Almond Avenue and Winton Way for a structure fire.


When fire crews arrived, they located a fully engulfed out building in back of a house. Due to limited resources, the fire from the out building, advanced to the residential structure.

A total of eight people were displaced. 

No injuries were reported.

The fire is still under investigation, according to Justin Chaplin, training officer for the Merced County Fire Department.
