Garage Fire ‘Completely Gutted’ Scripps Ranch Home

A Scripps Ranch home caught fire Sunday morning causing minor damage to a house next door, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue.

“The house is completely gutted, the first, second floor, and the garage,” said SDFD Battalion Chief Dave Seneviratne.

Crews determined the blaze was a “well-involved” garage fire that broke out shortly after 9 a.m.

"Crews were able to make an interior attack and get a handle on the fire," said Seneviratne. SDFD put out the fire in about 30 minutes.

The home is located on Caminito Alto.

Crews said the blaze had the potential to spread to the surrounding houses before it was put out.

“There’s a little bit of damage to one of the houses on the right side, but that’s about it. The fire didn’t extend into the interior of that house,” Seneviratne said.

No injuries were reported.

The Metro Arson Strike Team is investigating the cause of the fire.
