Police are investigating the cause of a one-alarm fire that damaged a home in Pinole early this morning, a battalion chief said. Units responded to reports of fire in a house at 2210 Sarah Court at about 4:25 a.m., Pinole Fire Department Battalion Chief Darren Johnson said. Arriving firefighters reported heavy fire in the entryway of the house and smoke billowing out of the roof area, Johnson said.

Crews determined that there was no one in the home and began an aggressive attack on the blaze, which eventually burned into an attic and through the roof, Johnson said. The fire was brought under control by 4:50 a.m. No one was injured. The cause of the fire was under investigation by the Pinole Police Department, Johnson said. Authorities were treating the fire as suspicious because it appeared to have started outside the front doorway and spread to the interior of the house, he said. Damage to the structure and its contents was estimated at
$215,000.
