Fire Sparks in Debris-Filled Backyard in City Heights

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to put out a fire that sparked in a debris-filled backyard in City Heights Wednesday.

Newschopper 7 captured smoke pouring from a shed outside the home on Winona Avenue near Colina Park Golf Course just at about 5:50 a.m.

The home's backyard was filled with debris and San Diego Fire-Rescue (SDFD) crews could be seen dousing the red shed in water from the perimeter of the yard. 

Crews had the fire knocked down by 6:10 a.m. and prevented it from spreading beyond the shed, SDFD spokesperson Monica Munoz said. 

There was no one living inside the home at the time and the fire caused no injuries, Muniz said. 

The blaze caused about $3,100 in damage to the shed and its contents. 

It was not immediately clear what caused the fire to spark.

No other information was available.
