Oceanside house fire starts in garage, spreads to attic

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) - A home in Oceanside is damaged after fire rips through the garage and goes into the attic.

Flames broke out around 7:00 a.m. Wednesday at a house in the 4900 block of Verde Drive, but were under control within 40 minutes.

The homeowner's son says his mom and her husband got out safely and that the fire started in the garage.

"There was a thermostat on the heater, the heater kicked on and it set fire to something and that set fire to everything else," explained Daniel Sullivan.

The cause is under investigation and the damage is being estimated.

There were no injuries reported.
