LAKESIDE, Calif. - A fire destroyed a vacant Lakeside home, officials said Monday.
The blaze was reported in the area of Lemon Crest and Single Oak drives in Lakeside just after 1 a.m., according to a Heartland fire dispatcher.
Crews battled the blaze from the exterior because of the intense flames, but crews had most of the blaze out a little more than an hour after arriving at the scene.
10News learned that the home, built in the 1940s, was recently sold to investors and they had planned on demolishing the home.
No one was injured in the fire, but investigators are looking into the cause.
