Families displaced after National City apartment fire

Posted: Updated:

NATIONAL CITY (CBS 8) - Flames engulfed a two-story apartment in National City early Thursday, displacing three families and temporarily evacuating several neighbors from their units, but no one was hurt, authorities said.

The fire at 1135 D Avenue was reported at 2:49 a.m. and knocked down about 20 minutes later, according to a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher. Five engines responded.

The cause is under investigation, although preliminary reports indicate that the fire may have started in the kitchen. The displaced residents are receiving help from the Red Cross.
