Placer County home sustains heavy fire damage

A large home in Placer County suffered heavy damage in an early morning fire.

A 911 call about 1:30 p.m. Monday alerted Cal Fire firefighters to the blaze at an approximately 3,500-square-foot house in the 3400 block of Amoruso Way. Firefighters could see flames light up the night sky as they left the firehouse near the Thunder Valley Casino.

Firefighters managed to save about 1,200-square-feet of the structure, which was well-involved in fire when engines arrived. Residents were not home when fire erupted, a Cal Fire spokeswoman said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
