Fire Breaks Out in East County Apartment Building

A fire broke out at a Serra Mesa apartment complex Thursday night the San Diego Fire Department confirmed.

When the fire broke out around 8:30 p.m., residents say they could hear people in the building     banging on doors alerting them of the fire.

"I was just on my way home and I start seeing smoke stacks and it's really crazy cause I live right here," Jennifer Stenson told NBC 7.

"I rushed home and everything was fine but I see the apartment across the street just smoking flames from one of the apartments. I don't think anyone was hurt, which is the best part."

Stenson said the smoke completely surrounded her home.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
