Posted: Updated:

NESTOR (CBS 8) - Fire rips through an apartment in Nestor Saturday causing extensive damage, but no injuries. 

Fire crews were called to the 1900 block of Ilex Avenue around 1 p.m. Saturday.

When they arrived smoke was billowing from a second floor window. Crews quickly entered the apartment and doused the flames.

Fire officials say the damage was confined to one room but the thick smoke left its mark on the rest of the unit.

"There seems to be some extensive damage in there but it did not extend to any of the adjoining units or below," said David Picone, with San Diego Fire-Rescue.

The Red Cross is helping the two adults and two children who lived in apartment. The cause of the fire has not been determined yet.
