An apartment fire in Point Loma forced nearly 200 people to evacuate from their residences, according to fire officials.
The incident happened shortly before 3 p.m, at Rue D'Orleans near W Point Loma Boulevard in the Pacific Isle apartment complex.
The fire started when plumbers were doing work in the apartment, according to San Diego Fire Department spokesperson Maurice Luque. The flames then spread up the walls causing damage on the third floor.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze and the fire is being investigated. Residents are being told to stay outside of the complex for now.
There were no injuries reported.
