FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A five-alarm fire has destroyed a historic building in Fresno’s downtown.

The Fresno Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1UGyQsL ) that the Rehorn Home was reduced to ruins after the fire Monday. The Rehorn Home was built by an early notable in the city and was on the National Register of Historic Places.

Firefighters responded Monday after someone reported seeing flames from inside the 4,027-foot Georgian Revival home. Neighboring apartment complexes were evacuated and trees were cut and sprayed to stop them from spreading the flames from the home to other buildings.

The home was built around the turn of the last century by pioneer and building contractor Frank Rehorn.
