Around 5:30am this morning, Metro Fire responded to a structure fire at 5730 Dry Creek Road.
Upon arrival they found a fully involved house fire, but had trouble getting access to the property because of the long, unpaved driveway.
Dry Creek Road was closed for about an hour due to the needed water supply being across the street from the property.
Witnesses say the home had been vacant and abandoned for some time, and that the Sacramento County Sheriff had been called in the past to address vagrants/homeless who had been living in the house.
Sac Metro Fire also received assistance from the Sacramento Fire Dept.
