A large house caught fire early this evening in Wilton, a town South East of Elk Grove.

According to fire fighters, the fire started out as a barbeque fire. The homeowner's son tells FOX40 that this was a million dollar home and that hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of antiques were inside at the house.

Fire crews responded in time, but they didn't have enough water to pump onto the flames. Because of the drought, the well in the area doesn't provide enough pressure to help.
