"The fight was actually reported at the property where the fire originated, said Lawrence French, Fresno Fire Department, "Whether or not it had anything to do with the initiation of the fire, it's unknown pending investigation of both the criminal element, which Fresno PD will conduct their investigation, and our cause and origin determination will be determined by our arson investigator."
