Fire crews in Santa Maria were busy putting out a house fire Wednesday afternoon.

The fire sparked around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of West Sunset Avenue. Crews say the fire started in a back bedroom and destroyed everything inside that room.

The homeowners were in the living room and kitchen at the time, but were able to get out safely. The fire was put out 20 minutes later. Damage is estimated at $95,000.
