Crews from three different fire departments are investigating a house fire near the city of Kingsburg.

Cal Fire says an abandoned home on the 14000 block of South Madsen burst into flames around 3 a.m. Saturday. When fire fighters arrived the back of the home was consumed by fire.

At one point a nearby garage was threatened but crews were able to save it and keep the flames spreading to homes across the street.

Investigators say they plan to interview witnesses and continue to process the scene.
