SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An electrical fire Monday at a downtown apartment building caused around $200,000 in damages and displaced two women who moved in over the weekend, authorities said.
The blaze broke out inside a single-story unit with a loft on the second level of the Park Row building on Kettner Boulevard near West G Street about 4:40 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
The fire was knocked down in about 30 minutes and did not damage any other units, although the unit below sustained slight water damage, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said. No one was injured.
Swanson said the fire caused about $150,000 in damage to the building and another $50,000 in damage to its contents.
