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.
