NORTH HIGHLANDS, Calif. (KTXL) — A child was badly injured in a house fire on Hillsdale Boulevard near Willowbrook Drive, according to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.
Fire crews responded to the home around 4 a.m. Tuesday.
Chris Vestal with Metro Fire said the fire had started in the kitchen then spread to the attic.
One girl was inside the home and had to be rescued, according to Vestal. She had been burned by the flames and was transported to an area hospital in what a battalion chief said was “grave condition.”
Vestal said two other children were found outside the home uninjured.
Two dogs died in the fire, according to crews at the scene.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation but is currently believed to be accidental. There were no working smoke alarms in the home at the time, according to Vestal.
