2-alarm fire at industrial park in El Cajon

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - Firefighters battled a two-alarm fire in El Cajon Monday evening.

The fire broke out in a motorhome shortly before 7:00 p.m. in the 1400 block of Pioneer Way. The flames quickly spread to other vehicles in a carport, as well as a nearby building.

Firefighters were also hampered by power lines that fell on a metal fence.

“Anytime we do have wires across a fence that means that entire fence is energized. So we're going to take extreme precautions to make sure we don't kill anybody from inadvertently touching that fence,” explained Battalion Chief Ted Kakuris with Heartland Fire and Rescue.

SDG&E crews cut power to the lines and firefighters had the fire extinguished within 30 minutes. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
