A neighbor, Myra Sarmiento, captured a picture of the firefighters supporting each other, trying to get the water to the top of the fire. This happened as crews were battling the weather conditions.

Neighbors say no one lives in the home, but Richmond fire says they cannot rule out that no one was inside when the fire broke out.
