Fire broke out just after midnight Wednesday at the Villa Del Rey Apartment complex in Oceanside. It left 14 adults and 18 children displaced. Oceanside Fire Department says a pot of food left unattended is the cause of the blaze. 2 units are destroyed, 2 units suffered smoke damage and 2 units are deemed uninhabitable. The estimated damage is valued at $180,000.
There were no injuries to firefighters, however 3 police officers and 5 residents were treated for smoke inhalation and cuts caused by broken glass.
