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.
