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.
Property manager at the Villa Del Rey complex says all residents now displaced will take over unoccupied units as early as Thursday. The American Red Cross is helping in the meantime.
