Man Jumps Out Window to Survive Fire

Fire threatened lives and destroyed homes Friday morning in Fallbrook but there's a silver lining to this sad tale.

Fire burned through one second-story apartment and damaged two other units at the Pine View Apartments on Alturas Road near Ammunition Road.

Three families were in the apartments when the fire broke out just before 6:30 a.m. according to Fallbrook firefighters.

One man living upstairs jumped from his second-story window to survive the flames. He was burned and transported to the UCSD Burn Center but his injuries are not considered critical.

Even though the homes aren’t livable, the families will have a place to stay because the manager of the complex has opened up three other vacant units in the complex to the renters.
