At least no one was injured in this fire. I am so sorry for the loss of home, but LIFE is more important.

I wonder what instruments he had in there... If they were old violins and cellos I would cry for them right here!

The corner house where the fire started was vacant however a female was sleeping in it?

Sort of alarming that on a windless day several houses burned down.

Anybody know how close these houses were to each other?

Wow...I live just 2 blocks away and I walk past there everyday on my way to and from work. How devastating! So glad no injuries have been reported.

I used to rent in that neighborhood and the houses are very close together - Most of the houses in that area don't have yards or have extremely small ones.
I am sure glad that everyone is OK but it is a shame to hear that those old victorians have burned - I hope that they rebuild, because those houses were beautiful!

Looken -- it said 'Victorian'. That usually means close enough to shake your neighbor's hand. Sometimes, they even have common walls and attics. YUK!!

Wow... I must have been by those places a million times in the past twenty years and never even noticed.

Oh well... different priorities in the olden days.

John from Lodi, the story said:

'Fire crews at first believed the blaze began in the unoccupied corner house under renovation. They now say it started at 2405 Q Street, which is immediately next door. The cause is under investigation.

A woman who only identified herself as "Tina" said she was sleeping in the house where the fire began when someone woke her, yelling there was a fire. She smelled smoke and got out quickly.'

Meaning the vacant house on the corner was NOT where it started and the woman was asleep in the house where the fire did start, next to the corner house.

I went by there today while they were still trying to put the fire out (I insure one of the houses), and it was quite a sight. Fortunately, it appears nobody was hurt, thank goodness. Property can be replaced - that's what insurance is for. But there is a slight breeze today, and those houses are pretty close to each other, so it's easy for the fire to spread.

Yes, Cosmo, you do. You never know when this might happen. Renters insurance is not expensive.

I'm deeply saddened by your comments. Those men and women put there lives in danger today to save lives and property of the citizens of Sacramento. They do this day in and day out at all hours of the day and night. They have families at home who await their return from duty and you have no right to nominalize their efforts

Well ... I understand your frustration and many on the job may be forever on the prowl...but there are some who really do try and sometimes succeed ....It's sad that so many are just lazy whoring scum. Well paid scum at that.

Downtown? It would be 2 to 5 ft. To bad they didn't build the houses in the Natomas area with the elevated porch. So when it floods out here just the basements get soaked. Guess we need some different city planners on staff.

WOW you sound bitter. The reason the fire crews cruise the streets is to be familiar with street names so they can get to a fire in the quickest manner. AND they have to cruise in their truck in case a call comes in.

Try to stop looking at life in the negative, life becomes much calmer and peaceful. Trust me, try it.

Confusing-2405 Q St. is an APARTMENT complex built in the 1960's, not a Victorian. I know because I lived in 2405 Q St. for five years! I think KXTV must of gotten the wrong address. My heart broke when I saw that the beautiful Victorian in the pictures (the one with the purple and blue paint) was affected, because when I moved there, it was just a broken shell of a home, but the new owners completely renoved it about eight years ago. However, from the pictures and news reports, it looks like that one might be salavageable. Thank goodness!

Also glad that there was no loss of human life, although the news last night said that a kitty cat had died, so that is very sad.:(
