    A dozen people are temporarily without a home after units in their Vista apartment complex were completely engulfed in flames Thursday evening. 

    The fire started in a unit in the 100 block of Pala Vista Drive and quickly spread through the complex's attic just after 7 p.m. 

    San Diego County Sheriff's deputies helped evacuate people in adjacent units in case the fire moved farther. 

    Firefighters worked to quickly control the blaze, and they have not yet determined the cause.
