SDFD investigating RV and house fire

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego fire officials are investigating a RV fire that grew and spread through a house in Cherokee Point.

Fire officials say they showed up at a house at 36th Street and Myrtle Avenue 2:00 p.m. Wednesday ready to fight a brush fire but instead found a motor home in the backyard engulfed in flames.

The quick moving fire reached the house, spreading through the kitchen and up into the attic.

Fire officials say four people and five animals have to find another place to stay Wednesday night.

"There was nobody home at this time, the occupant says she got a call from her neighbor. Says her house is on fire and she came from Point Loma to find her house what it's like now,” explained Captain Adam Villaescusa with the San Diego Fire Department.

The Metro Arson Strike Team is working on estimating the damage.
