SAN DIEGO -- A home caught fire Tuesday in a Paradise Hills area neighborhood.
  
Firefighters from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and the National City Fire Department were sent to the single-story home with an attached garage on Calle Trepadora near Cumberland Street at 2:15 a.m., fire officials said. 
 
Firefighters had to climb onto the roof to battle the fire, which was knocked down within about 20 minutes, but not before causing significant damage to the kitchen and patio. Crews remained on scene for several hours monitoring for hot spots. 
 
A husband and wife who reside in the home made it out safely. Firefighters were able to rescue two dogs from the home. There were no reported injuries. 
 
SDFR officials told 10News the fire was likely accidental in nature. The damage was estimated at $100,000.
