Smoke and fire were pummeling out of a two-story Carlsbad apartment building Monday when firefighters arrived on scene, fire officials said.
Oceanside and Carlsbad fire officials responded to the fire on the 2600 block of Via Eco at approximately 1:40 p.m. Monday.
The downstairs unit had smoke and fire showing when crews arrived and a second alarm response was requested.
Crews were able to knock down the fire and contain it to one unit, officials said, so the second alarm was canceled.
There were no reported injuries. There is no word on what may have caused the fire.
No further information was immediately available.
