EL CAJON, Calif. – A two-alarm fire that destroyed several vehicles and damaged a building in El Cajon remained under investigation Tuesday, police said.
The blaze started around 6:45 p.m. Monday in a motorhome parked outside Kropf Custom Sheet Metal at 1408 Pioneer Way west of state Route 67, according to Heartland Fire. Flames quickly spread to several nearby cars and to a building attached to the carport where the motor home was parked.
Firefighters had to stop attacking the fire and call utility crews when flames caused power lines to fall onto a metal fence. More than 30 firefighters from Heartland Fire and Rescue, Cal Fire, the San Diego Fire Rescue Department, and Santee worked together to knock down the fire in about thirty minutes.
No one was hurt in the fire. The building attached to the carport suffered minor damage.
Investigators were investigating the cause of the fire.
