Fire Rips Through A Mission Beach Apartment

Posted: Updated:

Residents of an apartment building in Mission Beach are forced to evacuate because of a fast-moving fire.

The blaze broke out Tuesday night on the 800 block of San Fernando Court.

Two people had to flee their upstairs apartment after seeing smoke and flames. But it only took firefighters minutes to put it out.

"We have it narrowed down to one bedroom think we know what caused it maybe a candle...still investigating that there was two people in the structure, and they got out safely and the Red Cross is going to put them up," said Captain Jimmy Black with the San Diego Fire Department.

The fire caused about $150,000 in damage.

Several neighbors were forced to spend the night elsewhere, but no one was hurt.
