A fire of unknown origin extensively damaged a South Bay home Tuesday.
The non-injury blaze in the 500 block of Dahlia Avenue in Imperial Beach erupted about 9 a.m., according to sheriff’s officials. The residents of the house, a family of three, were able to safely evacuate to a neighbor’s home as the fire was beginning to spread, said Sgt. Omar Vega.
Deputies cleared people out of several nearby houses as a precaution while firefighters extinguished the flames, which caused extensive damage to the structure and to two vehicles parked outside it, Vega said.
Though the blaze broke out near the displaced residents’ water heater, the precise cause was not immediately clear.
