An early morning fire on Wednesday destroyed a south Sacramento home.
The blaze was reported at about 4:45 a.m. Wednesday in a house in the 4400 block of Lemon Hill Avenue, which is near 47th Avenue and Highway 99. About 20 firefighters responded to the fire.
An air conditioner went through the roof at one point, causing firefighters to remove themselves from the top of the structure. The fire was then extinguished.
Two residents were able to safely get out of the structure. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

“The house was a total loss,” said Sacramento Fire Department spokesman and firefighter Roberto Padilla.
