Investigators determining cause of El Cajon apartment fire

Posted: Updated:

Investigators are trying to determine what caused an apartment unit to catch fire in El Cajon. The fire began around 9pm on E. Lexington Ave.

The El Cajon Fire Department had to rescue two people from the balcony of an adjacent apartment because flames were blocking their evacuation exit. They were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. No other injuries were reported.

Damage is estimated at $250,000 and the American Red Cross is assisting three families who were displaced.
