OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Several residents of an Oceanside retirement community found themselves displaced Friday following a non-injury fire that damaged three units, authorities said.
Firefighters went to Oceana in the 3600 block of North Vista Campana around 9 p.m. Thursday, said Oceanside Fire Department Battalion Chief Joe Ward. They found a fire burning intensively and generating heavy smoke.
The building's residents were safely removed and no injuries were reported, Ward said.
Firefighters confined the blaze mostly to the unit in which it originated, Ward said. That unit was heavily damaged, and two neighboring units sustained moderate damage, he said.
More than 40 firefighters battled the blaze, some placing ventilation holes in the building's roof to stop the fire from spreading through the common attic space, Ward said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
