City Heights Apartment a Total Loss After Fire

Fire crews had difficulty finding the apartment unit, tenant said



    An apartment fire in City Heights destroyed an entire unit early Monday morning, firefighters said.

    The fire started just before 4 a.m. on the 4100 block of Pepper Drive, according to the San Diego Fire Department.

    Investigators believe the fire started in the garage on the first floor of the unit and spread upward to the living space on the second floor.

    The unit was behind the street and very difficult to find, said tenant Daniel Widecker.

    Two people were inside the apartment unit when it caught fire. They both evacuated safely.

    There were no injuries but firefighters said the building and almost everything inside it is a total loss.
