SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fire that tore through a City Heights apartment, displacing two residents, injuring a man -- possibly the arsonist -- and causing an estimated $200,000 worth of property damage, remained under investigation Thursday.
The blaze in the 4000 block of 37th Street erupted shortly before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, said the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Crews had the flames extinguished within about 15 minutes and were able to contain them to a single ground-floor unit.
Medics took a man to UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest for treatment of burns to his hands and face, said department spokesman Maurice Luque.
Investigators determined that the apartment had been torched, and the injured man -- whose name was withheld -- was considered a potential suspect, according to Luque.
Authorities disclosed no possible motive for the arson.
The monetary losses were set at $150,000 to the structure and $50,000 to contents.
