A boy was hospitalized after a house fire in Carmel Valley Tuesday.
The family woke up to a fire in their home, just after midnight. The second floor of a home on the 4600-block of Sevona was engulfed in flames, due to a contractor’s table and materials according to firefighters.
The mother said she, her husband and her daughter were doing okay but her 4-year-old son was still at UCSD being treated for smoke inhalation.
The woman told NBCSanDiego they had to go through an unbelievable amount of black smoke to get out.
Firefighters say the family is lucky they live so close to a fire station.
The family had been undergoing renovation on the home. Firefighters say the fire likely started from some construction materials upstairs.
A table found inside the home was surrounded by caulk and other chemicals and substances, but firefighters could not give an exact cause until the investigation is complete.
