House under renovation destroyed in morning blaze in East Palo Alto
December 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A house undergoing renovation in East Palo Alto was destroyed in a fire Monday morning, a Menlo Park Fire Protection District inspector said.

The two-alarm fire was reported around 6:15 a.m. in the 600 block of Bell Street, at the corner of Capitol Avenue, senior fire inspector Jon Johnston said.

The single-story home was being remodeled and was vacant when the fire broke out. A neighbor walking a dog on the block noticed flames and called for help, Johnston said.

When firefighters arrived, the home was engulfed in flames, Johnston said. Fire crews knocked down the fire around 7 a.m.

The fire spread to a detached garage, and there was minor damage to a neighboring home, he said.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
