The fire occurred around 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 2400 block of Traffic Way. It took about 30 firefighters and five fire engines to extinguish the blaze.

No injuries occurred, but the fire destroyed about 75 percent of the home. The homeowner arrived shortly after the fire began and called 911.

Atascadero Fire Department officials said they believe the fire started in the kitchen, though no one was home at the time. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
