Firefighters make quick work of Tierrasanta house fire

Posted: Updated:

TIERRASANTA (CBS 8) - Firefighters wasted little time in putting out a house fire in Tierrasanta.

It started just before 3 p.m. Sunday in the 4600 block of Seda Cove.

San Diego police say a couple living at the home was able to escape safely with their dogs.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but police say they might know what sparked it.

"The homeowner was putting some Danish teak oil on some patio furniture and then disposed of the empty containers for the oil in an empty trash can. About two hours later the fire broke out from the empty trash can," Lt. Darryl Hoover of the San Diego police said.

A police officer suffered minor injuries after some burning debris singed some hair off one of his forearms when he went into the house.
