Neighbors and firefighters quickly put out a fire that erupted outside an Emerald Hills home Monday morning.
The blaze was reported about 12:20 a.m. in the 800 block of Selma Place off Roswell Street northeast of Euclid Avenue and Market Street. San Diego Fire- Rescue Department crews and San Diego police were dispatched to the scene.
Footage from ABC10 showed neighbors fighting the flames with garden hoses before firefighters arrived and quickly knocked down the flames. A neighbor told the television station the fire appeared to have started in a pile of dead leaves and several people from the neighborhood rushed out of nearby homes to help alert others of the danger.
The blaze scorched a shed, a fence and some vegetation outside the home but was stopped before spreading to the main dwelling.
