The blaze was reported at 9:19 a.m. at a two-story home at 1342 Shafter Ave. by firefighters who saw flames on the roof of the building, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.
Crews called for a second alarm at 9:27 a.m. and had water on the fire minutes later, eventually extinguishing the blaze at 9:47 a.m., Talmadge said.
The fire damaged the roof and an area behind the home's kitchen cabinets, Talmadge said.
No injuries were reported and no one has been displaced, she said.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
