RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. -- A resident and his dog fled a fire that destroyed a Rancho Santa Fe home Sunday night causing several explosions

The blaze that engulfed a multi-million dollar home being rented by a man who just moved in with his dog one month ago, 10News reporter Mimi Elkalla reports. The man was sleeping when he heard his smoke alarm go off.

Repeated pops could be heard coming from the 6,000-square-foot home on Avenida Alondra during the fire. Rancho Santa Fe fire reports that ammunition and aerosol cans exploded inside the garage. 

An airbag in the man's Tesla exploded and launched through the garage's roof. 

The blaze was reported at about 11:00 p.m. and it took about an hour to knock down the fire. Crews remain on the scene Monday morning. 

The cause is currently under investigation. The man and his dog are being helped by the Red Cross since they fleed the home without any belongings.
