Fire erupts at tented home in La Jolla

SAN DIEGO - Firefighters knocked down a blaze that caused about $550,000 in damage Thursday to a La Jolla house that was tented for fumigation.

Firefighters and a hazardous materials crew were sent to the home on Bahia Lane near Parkview Terrace about 2:40 p.m., removed the tent and knocked down the flames shortly after 3:30 p.m, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

The fire was accidental, but its cause had yet to be determined, SDFRD Spokesman Maurice Luque said.

Two firefighters who had been battling the blaze were taken to a hospital, one who sustained a sprained thumb and another who complained of dizziness, according to Luque.

Another firefighter fell through the floorboards, but was not injured.

The fire caused about $250,000 in damage to the structure and another $50,000 in damage to its contents, Luque said.
