NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — About a dozen people living in tents outside a condemned house have been displaced after a fire burned their tents and damaged the home in a San Diego suburb.
San Diego fire and rescue dispatchers say the fire on Thursday morning affected 13 people, including three children in National City. Police say one of them was living inside the house that began to burn shortly before 3 a.m. The blaze damaged the house, engulfed a nearby motor home and destroyed the tents in the backyard.
No serious injuries were reported.
Authorities say the house was scheduled to be demolished and the people may have been squatting.
