Fire Department Investigates Bonita House Fire as Possible Arson

The San Diego Sheriff's Department (SDSO) Bomb Arson Team is investigating a Bonita hoarding house as possible arson, according to Bonita fire officials.

It is the second fire reported at the house in a matter of months, according to fire officials. 

At approximately 7:03 a.m. on Wednesday, the Bonita Fire Department was called to the home in the 2900 block of Sylvia Street. 

The fire damaged the house structure and extended to some of the grass outside, according to the Bonita fire department. Crews put the fire out within 15 minutes. No one was injured. 

The SDSO bomb arson department arrived at the scene first, but said that does not necessarily mean the fire was the result of arson. 

Officials said they are investigating at the request of the fire department due to the history of calls to the location. 

The previous fire at the location was deemed accidental, according to a statement from fire officials.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but Bonita Fire Department stated there was a hoarding situation involved. 

No further information is available.
