Point Loma apartment fire displaces four residents; one taken to hospital
An apartment fire March 1 in Point Loma displaced a family of four and sent one of the residents to a hospital with omplaints of smoke inhalation.
The blaze erupted for unknown reasons shortly after 11 a.m. in a second-floor unit at a residential complex in the 4300 block of West Point Loma Boulevard, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Crews subdued the flames in about 20 minutes, said department spokesman Jose Ysea.
Paramedics took one of the residents of the damaged apartment to a trauma center for evaluation of mild respiratory irritation caused by breathing in smoke from the fire, Ysea said.
The American Red Cross was called to help the family — two adults and two children — arrange for emergency shelter.
