A late-afternoon house fire in Imperial Beach sent a young man to a hospital Thursday and left a family in need of emergency lodging.
The blaze in the 1100 block of Florida Street erupted for unknown reasons about 5:15 p.m., Imperial Beach Fire Chief John French said.
Firefighters were able to get the flames under control within about five minutes, he said.
Medics took a 21-year-old man to a trauma center for treatment of minor burns and smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
