Residents who escaped a mobile home fire in San Marcos made a key decision that kept the fire from spreading officials said Tuesday.

A man and a woman were uninjured when fire broke out inside the home at Palomar Estates West on West San Marcos Blvd. just after midnight.

The residents were awakened by the light of the fire in their bedroom and got out of the room quickly, closing the door behind them, a fire battalion chief told NBC 7.

That kept the fire from spreading and helped firefighters save most of the valuables in the home.

The fire had started on an attached porch, according to officials.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation.

No one was injured.
