Coincidentally the house was the location of a stabbing on Monday night where a 24 year old male received multiple stab wounds. The house was supposed to be vacant as the resident is currently in custody at the Placer County Jail for another reason. CALFIRE notified the Placer County Sheriff of the fire.
