La Jolla house fire displaces four residents

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A house fire in La Jolla displaced a family of four Thursday and caused an estimated $650,000 worth of damage, authorities reported.

The non-injury blaze in the 2200 block of Calle Guaymas erupted about 9:15 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

It took firefighters about 25 minutes to extinguish the flames, which spread through about half of the single-story residence, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.

Investigators determined that the fire started in a master-bathroom closet due to an electrical problem.

The monetary losses were set at $500,000 to the structure and $150,000 to contents, Munoz said.
