Arson investigators with the Visalia Fire Department are trying to find out how two homes under construction caught fire and sustained major fire damage.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, fire crews responded to a residential structure fire on East Cypress Avenue, in a new neighborhood near Tulare Avenue and McAuliff Street, to find two residential structures that were under construction involved in heavy fire.

The fire was brought under control in approximately 30 minutes. Two structures sustained major fire damage and a third structure sustained minor heat damage to a portion of the fascia, stucco and windows. All three structures were under construction.

Total Fire Damage to the two structures that burned is estimated to be over $500,000.00. Savings to the third structure that was saved is estimated to be $260,000.00.
