ESCONDIDO (CNS) - Firefighters rescued a resident from a burning home in Escondido Tuesday and took the person to a hospital, a battalion chief said.
Neighbors told firefighters dispatched to the two-story home in the 3000 block of Violet Glen near Huckleberry Lane at 8:15 a.m. that the resident was possibly still inside, according to Battalion Chief John Tenger of the Escondido Fire Department.
Fire crews searched the home and found the resident, then paramedics began working to resuscitate the victim, whose name was not released, Tenger said. A condition report was not immediately available.
Firefighters had the blaze contained in about 20 minutes, he said.
Tenger said no other injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remained under investigation.
