Police investigate house fire that injured 2
VISTA, Calif. — Investigators were working to determine if a Vista home fire that left a man and a woman injured Wednesday was intentionally set.
As firefighters extinguished the small blaze and vented smoke from the home at 1154 Nash Lane around 7:30 a.m., they spotted a woman in her 40s with “significant burn injuries,” Vista Deputy Fire Chief Ned Vander Pol said.
She was taken to a burn unit to be treated, along with a man in his 60s who was also injured, Vander Pol said.
The home sustained only minor smoke damage, he said.
The sheriff’s department’s bomb-arson unit was summoned to determine what caused the fire and whether it was started intentionally, sheriff’s Lt. Mike Munsey said.
