A fire destroyed at least two apartments at a Spring Valley 12-unit complex Sunday morning, but caused no injuries, according to San Miguel Fire and Rescue.
Sheriff’s deputies evacuated the complex, in the 10800 block of Jamacha Boulevard, at about 9 a.m. as flames ripped through the building.
“They had heavy fire from the first and second floor and in multiple units,” said San Miguel Battalion Chief Andy Lawler.
It took firefighters about 25 minutes to control the blaze. San Diego and Heartland firefighters assisted at the scene. All of the housing units sustained at least some damage.
Crews also performed CPR to revive a small dog. An animal control officer cared for the dog after the life-saving aid.
Authorities summoned the American Red Cross to aid those who have been displaced.
