Grow house fire near Fowler and Clinton

<div class="StoryBlock">
A house on Fowler near Clinton in Fresno county goes up in flames. <br /><br />Investigators say marijuana was being grown at the home. Inside they found about 50 plants. The fire started on the second floor. People were reportedly stealing electricity from PG&amp;E to power their pot growing operation which led to the fire, but firefighters say fires like this can happen even if they’re paying for electricity. <br /><br />&quot;They overload the circuits and so we get a lot of fires that are like this, where they’re actually paying for the electrical, they just don’t hook it up correctly,&quot;&nbsp;Pete Martinez, Staff Officer/PIO Fresno Fire said.<br /><br />Witnesses reported seeing people inside taking off once they heard sirens coming. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is now investigating.<br /></div>
