Fire engulfed a number of outbuildings right along an ocean cliff in Point Loma late Wednesday, posing a danger for firefighters.
San Diego Fire Rescue got the call about an intense fire just after 11:30 p.m.
The fire burned abandoned outbuildings along the 4500-block of Ladera Street located just north of Sunset Cliffs Park.
The park is along the coast just west of Point Loma Nazarene University.
“We could see that the outbuildings were burning but they had to find their way through some tough terrain to get there,” said Battalion Chief Ty Shimoguchi.
“There’s a cliff edge right there so there was a little bit of a danger for them.”
It took firefighters five to 10 minutes to knock down the fire officials said.
No reports of any injuries.
San Diego police detained what appeared to be five male juveniles.
No word on the cause of the fire or if any of those men detained were involved in setting the blaze.
