A family of five was evacuated from their North Park home early Thursday when a fire sparked in the attic.
When San Diego Fire-Rescue (SDFD) crews arrived at about 3:30 a.m. to the two-story home near Landis and Mississippi streets, smoke could be seen pouring out of the home, the SDFD said.
The residents inside, a mother and father, three kids and a dog, were all safely evacuated and no injuries were reported.
SDFD crews discovered the fire was coming from the attic and began to attack the blaze. Firefighters had to cut open the walls to extinguish the fire.
One neighbor witnessed the firefighters at work said he is thankful for their quick action.
"These guys are amazing. It’s been amazing seeing them operate and do what they do," Brooks Loro said." Hats off to the fire department."
Flames were tempered before 5 a.m. but some smoke was still smoldering.
Portions of the home were damaged but the home was not destroyed, SDFD Deputy Chief Steve Wright said.
Firefighters remained on scene checking for any hot spots and investigating what may have caused the fire.
