Investigations underway in two overnight fires

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A vacant home in Lakeside and an abandoned clubhouse
in San Diego's Allied Gardens neighborhood caught fire early Monday about an
hour apart but no one was hurt, authorities said.

The first fire at the vacant home in the area of Lemon Crest and Single
Oak drives in Lakeside was reported just after 1 a.m., according to a Heartland
fire dispatcher. Crews had most of the blaze out a little more than an hour
later, she said.

A couple said they were preparing to move in once utility
service was set up at the vacant home, which was about 3,000 square feet.

Crews responded to Monday morning's second structure fire at 1:53 a.m. A
clubhouse in an abandoned mobile home park in the area of Greenbrier Avenue and
Mission Gorge Road caught fire, according to a San Diego fire-rescue
dispatcher. It was knocked down within about 40 minutes, he said.

Monday marked the second time this month San Diego fire-rescue was called
to douse a fire in the abandoned mobile home park. Around 2:30 a.m. last
Wednesday, a fire broke out in a roughly 20-by-35-foot outbuilding in the park.

The cause of the fires was under investigation. This morning's fires
occurred about 13 miles apart.
