Neighbors help save Madera home from fire

MADERA, Calif.

They say the fire started in the Fresno River and burned through an empty lot filled with dry brush. The flames destroyed one neighbor's fence, but did not reach the home.

Fire officials said this damage could have been prevented if people in the area had proper clearance. They also said the flames moved quickly because of windy conditions.
