Brush fire threatens home with family inside

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – An overnight brush fire threatened a home in the Allied Gardens neighborhood overnight.

As the flames got closer to the home in the 4800 block of Greenbrier Avenue, the family inside had to evacuate.

Firefighters were concerned the flames would spread to other homes in the area, but were able to extinguish the blaze without any major damage.

The fire may have been started by a downed power line, officials said.

Nobody was hurt in the fire.
