The fire burned through a detached garage and spread to the main residence that is considered to be a total loss, Stoffel said. An occupant of the house was taken to a hospital for major burn injuries, and two other people required medical attention, fire officials said.

Battalion Chief Matt Luckenbach said on Saturday the injured man was treated at a local hospital and was then flown to a trauma center. He is in serious condition, with undisclosed injuries.

Luckenbach said the injured man was the only one home at the time of the blaze. Two homes and three cars sustained heat damage in the blaze while one car was a total loss, according to fire officials.

The fire caused an estimated $500,000 in damage, fire officials said. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Luckenbach said it did not appear to be suspicious.

Crews from the Vacaville Fire Department and Cordelia Fire Protection District also assisted in the fire.
