A residential fire spotted by a neighbor in Carmichael Saturday was the work of an arsonist, officials said.
The fire in the 5700 block of Ensign Street was reported at 5:15 a.m. and officials suspect arson in the blaze, Sacramento Metropolitan District fire Capt. Kim Fong wrote in a statement.
It was unclear whether the residents were displaced.
Arriving firefighters found flames in two rooms at opposite ends of the home, Fong said.
A damage estimate was not released.
