The fire was reported to be at 621 De Cair Court at 2:50 p.m., Diamond Springs Fire Battalion Chief Ken Earle said.
“It was a residential fire, the cause is still under investigation,” he said. There were no injuries.
The house was “severely damaged,” Earle said, with about half the house standing and the other half blackened, but the fire was contained by about 3:40 p.m.
