So that was what I saw when I was going down Grant Road today.

Wow, not good.

Good question, Karen. Any information that the Mountain View Fire Department has released on this, Voice staffers?

welp it's been over a year with no new article about the cause of this.

i live down the street from this house and i heard that someone was arrested at the scene. and since there seemed to be an insane amount of fire even with residents inside,, makes me think there was an explosion rather than slow burning fire,, for example caused by a cigarette.

so there you have it, the fire was caused by a man COOKING illegal food that exploded in his face up on to the roof.
