A woman was arrested on suspicion of arson Tuesday in connection with a vehicle fire that spread to the outside of a house in the Allied Gardens area, officials said.
Dispatchers received reports around 3:40 a.m. of a vehicle fire in the driveway of a house in the 5600 block of Barclay Avenue, just off Waring Road, San Diego Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.
The fire spread to the outside of the house before firefighters knocked down the flames around 4 a.m., Munoz said. The inside of the house was not damaged.
No injuries were reported.
Metro Arson Strike Team investigators were investigating the cause of the fire.
A woman who lives at the home told NBC7 she saw a woman inside her Hyundai and the woman took off after igniting the fire.
San Diego Police arrested 45-year-old Evette Amparano near the scene on suspicion of arson, public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.
