A fire that was allegedly intentionally started in what turned out to be the wrong home in Roseville home Wednesday night has landed an Elk Grove man in jail.
The fire was at a residence in the 1300 block of Champagne Circle. Roseville firefighters responded at 9:52 p.m. and found flames had expanded to the attic and roof and threatened neighboring homes, Roseville police spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said. Fire crews put out the fire and kept it from spreading. The home was extensively damaged.
A woman was in the home at the time. Her 18-year-old son helped her and the family dog get out safely.
Fire investigators ruled the fire was deliberately set, Gunther said.
