ESCONDIDO, Calif. — Two people were displaced Monday night after a fire damaged their Escondido home.
The blaze broke out around 6:20 p.m. in the home located near Summit Drive and Mary Lane. Crews quickly put out flames in the attic area, but not before pulling down part of the ceiling to ensure the fire did not reignite.
Officials said it appeared a malfunctioning electrical box sparked the flames; investigators did not suspect arson. No injuries were reported.
