Fire Melts Door, Tears Through Imperial Beach Home

A family is displaced after a fire tore through their Imperial Beach home late Wednesday. 

Crews were called to the home on Holly Avenue, less than a block from Oneonta Elementary School, just before 11 p.m. and saw heavy smoke and flames pouring from the home. 

The family was able to make it out of the home uninjured and firefighters quickly subdued flames. 

Footage from the scene shows the home's front door melted and part of the interior gutted. 

It was not clear how much damage the fire caused.

The cause was not known. The San Diego Sheriff's Department arson team was investigating.
