JAMUL (CNS) - A fire of unknown origin damaged a home in a back-country neighborhood west of Barrett Lake today and left a resident with burn injuries.

The blaze in the 17000 block of Lyons Valley Road in Jamul erupted shortly before 3 p.m., according to Cal Fire.

It took crews about an hour to fully subdue the flames, said Issac Sanchez, a fire captain with the state agency.

Medics took a 25-year-old man to UCSD Medical Center in San Diego for treatment of burns of undisclosed severity.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, Sanchez said.
