SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fire of unknown origin spread through a City Heights home Monday afternoon, leaving four people in need of emergency lodging and causing an estimated $270,000 worth of damage.
The non-injury blaze in the 3400 block of Fairmount Avenue erupted about 1:15 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
It took firefighters about 30 minutes to subdue the flames, which also damaged a van parked alongside the burning residence, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said.
The American Red Cross was called in to help the displaced residents arrange for interim housing.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
