    A dozen people need a place to stay after fire damaged a home in Mountain View Thursday.

    San Diego Fire-Rescue crews were called to the home at S 40th Street and Teak Street just after 1 p.m. and found heavy smoke and flames.

    San Diego City Battalion Chief David Picone said it appears the fire started in the kitchen but fire investigators are interviewing the owners to try and determine the exact cause.

    Picone said 10 people lived in the main home with two people staying in an adjacent home in the rear of the property.

    One person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, he said.

    The San Diego chapter of the American Red Cross was called in to help the family with clothing and food as well as a place to stay.

    The high winds San Diego has been experiencing under the high wind warning did not have any affect on this fire, Picone said.
