OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Eight adults and a child were displaced Monday following a non-injury fire at a two-story apartment building in Oceanside, authorities said.
Forty-one firefighters battled the two-alarm blaze, which was reported at 127 Avenida Las Brisas about 3:10 p.m. Sunday, said Oceanside fire Battalion Chief Peter Lawrence. It took them nearly 45 minutes to put out the flames, he said.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation, but preliminary information suggested it began with a water heater located in a carport below the apartments, Lawrence said, noting that flames spread through the walls and ducts into the apartments above.
Two units were damaged by the fire and another two were declared uninhabitable due to damage to utility lines, Lawrence said.
Damage was estimated at $50,000 to the structure and $20,000 to the contents of two of the building's four units.
