5 displaced after fire at Oceanside home

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CNS) - Four adults and one child were displaced Tuesday after flames ripped through their Oceanside home, causing about $150,000 in damage, authorities said.

The noninjury fire at 4744 Dalea Place erupted shortly before 5:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Oceanside Fire Department. Crews had it under control about a half-hour later.

The fire began in an attached garage and spread to the house and into an attic space, OFD Battalion Chief Bill Kogerman said.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation, but it appeared to have been caused by an electrical malfunction, Kogerman said.

In addition to the heavily damaged garage and home, a vehicle in the driveway was damaged, and minor damage was reported at adjacent homes, he said.

The Red Cross was assisting the displaced family.
