House fire displaces Paradise Hills family

SAN DIEGO — A family escaped safely after their Paradise Hills home caught fire Tuesday.

Firefighters from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and the National City Fire Department were sent to the single-story home with an attached garage on Calle Trepadora near Cumberland Street at 2:15 a.m., fire officials said.

The structure fire was knocked down about 20 minutes later. Fireplace ashes left in a trash can near the house sparked the blaze, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

The fire caused about $100,000 in damages. Two adults and two pets living in the home have made temporary housing arrangements.
