According to the Turlock Fire Department, the fire spread from the basement to the main level through holes in the floor.

The fire was contained within 20 minutes of the Turlock Fire Department arriving.

At this time, the cause is unknown as there was no power or natural gas connected to the vacant residence, reports the Turlock Fire Department.
