On Tuesday morning, a growing fire which started near Stockton’s I-5 freeway lead to many homes being destroyed and damaged. At this time, there is no official known cause of the fire. This was reported to be Stockton’s biggest residential fire ever.

The fire destroyed 18 residences and damaged 20 others, causing an estimated $4 million to $5 million worth of damage. The human toll was light – two firefighters suffered minor injuries and returned to the line, while civilians suffered from nothing more than smoke inhalation.

I don’t really know what to say other than if you can in any way, try to help out. More info is available at Recordnet.com
