Firefighters are trying to put out a car fire before it spreads to a garage and connected house in Rancho Penasquitos, fire officials said Tuesday night.
A BMW 3 series and Honda Accord were damaged when the garage became fully involved in flames in the 14400 block of Corte Lampara at 10 p.m.
A San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesperson said the resident drove his car into the garage and ten minutes later the garage was on fire.
Crews were able to put out the fire within 10 minutes, officials said.
A family of five living in the home had to spend the night with relatives.
Officials said the fire did not damage the interior of the home but may have damaged the structure's electrical system.
