Firefighters quickly contained a fire in a condominium to the unit’s living room Saturday, according to the Oceanside Fire Department.

Crews responded to an eight-unit condo complex in the 500 block of Calle Montecito at 8:42 a.m. Saturday, Battalion Chief Lucifer Keener said.

Five minutes after the initial alarm, the first engine arrived and found black smoke and fire coming from a window on the bottom floor.

“Upon entry, fire crews found the contents on fire in the living room,” Keener said. “Crews advanced hose lines, entered the unit and quickly knocked down the initial fire within eight minutes of arrival.”

Additional crews ensured all occupants of adjoining condos were out of their homes, which were evaluated.

“Quick knockdown and sufficient overhaul of the area confirmed the fire was kept to the room of origin,” Keener said.

Residents from the other condos were able to return to their homes. No bystanders, homeowners or firefighters suffered injuries.

The cause remained under investigation.
