3 pets killed in apartment fire, cause under investigation

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Flames tore through a University Heights apartment Tuesday, displacing a woman and killing her cat and dogs, authorities reported.

The blaze in the 4500 block of Campus Avenue erupted about 10 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

It took about two dozen firefighters just under 15 minutes to extinguish the flames, which caused extensive damage to the second-floor residence and sent smoke into a neighboring unit, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.

Crews found two small dogs and a cat dead inside the charred second-floor residence, he said. The resident was at work when the blaze broke out.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
