Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fire at a Point Loma-area home injured one person, and caused about $700,000 in damage, fire officials said Sunday.

The fire was reported in the basement of the home in the 3900 block of La Cresta Drive near Narragansett Avenue about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and crews had it knocked down in less than 30 minutes, a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said.

A woman in her 90s was taken to a hospital to be evaluated for smoke inhalation, U-T San Diego reported. Both she and another person will not be able to stay in the structure, and the American Red Cross was called in to assist the two displaced residents, the dispatcher said.

The fire caused $350,000 in damage to the house and another $350,000 in damage to its contents, the dispatcher said. Its cause remained under investigation, he said.
