A father suffered life-threatening burns to his face and head and his 10-year-old daughter suffered smoke inhalation injuries when a fire broke out in their Carmel Valley apartment home.
The fire was reported at 12634 Torrey Bluff Drive at around 4:30 p.m. Firefighters responded and found smoke billowing out of the windows of the unit on the second floor.
The father is being treated at UC San Diego Hospital for life-threatening burn injuries on his face, head and hands. His daughter was taken to the same hospital, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Crews told NBC 7 the father admitted to using smoking materials inside the bedroom where the fire started.
SDFD Batallion Chief David Conner said the fire didn't cause damage to any other units.
Conner said a mother and two more children who also live at the unit were not home when the fire broke out.
