ESCONDIDO, Calif. - Authorities said five adults and a baby were left homeless after a late night fire Sunday gutted their apartment in Escondido.
Firefighters said the blaze broke out at the Felicita Villas complex on the 1600 block of South Juniper Street just before 11 p.m. When fire crews arrived, they found the second story unit engulfed in flames.
Residents of all four of the apartments in the building managed to escape safely, along with multiple babies.
The fire was knocked down in about 20 minutes, and no injuries were reported.
A mattress was seen being thrown out of a fire gutted window, but fire investigators said they had yet to determine the exact cause.
