A house fire in the far eastern reaches of San Diego County displaced two people Thursday.

The non-injury blaze in the 3100 block of Slice Court in Borrego Springs erupted for unknown reasons shortly before 10 a.m., according to Cal Fire.

Crews contained the flames to the master bedroom of the single-story home and had the fire under control in less than half an hour, said Neil Czapinski, a fire captain with the state agency.

The American Red Cross arrived to help the residents, a man and a woman, arrange for emergency lodging, Czapinski said.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
