    Authorities say fire in a stack of hay bales at a Ramona pet store spread to two homes and came close to power lines and propane tanks before firefighters were able to contain it. There were no injuries.

    The two-alarm fire was reported around 2:30 a.m. Monday and contained about 4 a.m.

    A dispatcher for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection told City News Service the fire spread to two neighboring homes, causing some damage and displacing four people.

    The dispatcher did not know the cause of the fire at Kahoots Feed & Pet Store on the 200 block of Main Street. Firefighters did not have a damage estimate.

    Ramona is about 40 miles northeast of San Diego.
