Man and dog escape house fire in Rancho Santa Fe

Posted: Updated:

RANCHO SANTA FE (CNS) - A Rancho Santa Fe mansion was destroyed in a fire, but the man who lived there and his dog made it out safely, officials said Monday.

Firefighters were dispatched shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday to the 18000 block of Avenida Alondra, where they called for a second-alarm response, said Rancho Santa Fe Fire Department spokeswoman Julie Taber.

A total of 40 to 50 firefighters were deployed, dispatched from Encinitas, Solana Beach and Carlsbad, Taber said. 

Investigators were trying to determine the fire's cause and assess the damages Monday morning.

The home was a total loss and the Red Cross responded to help the displaced residents find temporary shelter. No injuries were reported.
