    An apartment fire Tuesday night destroyed one Chula Vista family's home and evacuated the family living below.

    The incident happened around 11:20 p.m. on Tuesday on the 600-block of F Street.

    The fire started on the second story in the kitchen from a stove top, and firefighters say it spread quickly into the rest of the apartment, ultimately destroying it. The fire then spread to the first floor.
    Firefighters were able to contain the blaze in about 8 minutes.
    The family was not injured, but two firefighters were taken to the hospital with minor burns.
    The Red Cross is helping the displaced family.
