A fire caused $60,000 in damage to a vacant second-story apartment of a City Heights duplex early Monday, displacing one person, officials said.

The fire was reported on Wabash Avenue near Wightman Street shortly after 4:35 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke and fire coming from “multiple windows” on the second floor, Deputy Fire Chief David Gerboth told OnScene TV.

Crews worked quickly and prevented the blaze from spreading to other apartments, officials said. The fire also caused extensive damage to the roof of the building.

San Diego fire officials said the apartment had been vacant about a week and no one was inside when the fire broke out. No one was injured.

Investigators with the Metro Arson Strike Team were assigned to the blaze and will try to determine how it started.
