One person was injured in an explosion Wednesday at a second story apartment in Ocean Beach.
The incident happened around 2:20 p.m. in the 2000 block of Bacon Street, about five blocks away from Ocean Beach Park.
“First thing when company got here, we saw a light smoke. Immediately put out the fire,” San Diego Fire-Rescue Battalion Chief Ed Kinnamon said. “It was confined to the top one-bed-room studio on the second floor.”
One person was burned in and transported to UC San Diego Medical Center.
“I did see some flames in the living room (of the burned apartment) when I came out of my apartment,” neighbor Antoinette Davis said
Because of the nature of the injuries, San Diego County Mobile Adolescent Services Team, SDFD, SDFD Hazmat, San Diego Hazmat, as well as the San Diego Police Department, were called in to investigate.
“We have everybody come to investigate, trying to eliminate every possible issue to determine the actual cause of the fire,” Kinnamon said.
