An early morning fire destroyed a home in the Mountain View neighborhood of San Diego on Saturday and displaced seven residents.

A fire that apparently started in the kitchen had fully engulfed the house at 3820 Teak Street by 3:30 a.m.

The four adults and three children were able to get out of the home, but one person was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

The fire spread to two vehicles parked outside the house as well as nearby trees.

San Diego Fire-Rescue called for an arson team to investigate the cause of the blaze.
