FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fire crews are mopping up an electrical fire that completely destroyed a home in east-central Fresno.

There were flames coming from the roof in the middle of the home.

Firefighters were able to enter the structure, but once inside the middle of the ceiling collapsed, so they quickly retreated.
