SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Electrical problems are to blame for a garage fire in Vista.

The massive blaze broke out in a converted garage behind a home in the 600 block of Onley Drive.

The flames reached nearby power lines, causing them to fall. Firefighters had to back off and let the garage burn until SDGE crews arrived.

Firefighters say the building is a total loss. The fire displaced one adult and one child. No one was hurt in the fire.

Investigators say there were reports of faulty wiring before the fire.

The homeowners could face charges or fines for the illegal structure.
