SAN DIEGO —
Investigators were trying to determine what started a suspicious house fire in Serra Mesa that displaced one resident, officials said.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Battalion Chief Mark Reece told OnScene TV that one resident left the house just before the fire, which was reported about 12:30 p.m. on Russmar Drive not far from Jones Elementary School.
Reece added that the fire was suspicious in nature.
Firefighters found the fire in the attic and contained the blaze within about 10 minutes.
“Crews encountered heavy storage conditions inside the house, but were able to overcome that and contain it to just one room in the house,” Reece said.
No injuries were reported.
Battalion Chief David Pilkerton said the Red Cross was called to assist the displaced resident.
