On September 29, 2018 at 0414hrs the Escondido Police and Fire Communication Center received a report of a structure fire in the 1600 block Cambria Pl. The first arriving engine found heavy black smoke coming from a well involved garage fire. Due to the potential for fire spread a working upgrade was requested and dispatched. Aggressive action by the firefighters allowed them to contain the fire to the garage, the rest of the structure suffered moderate smoke damage. The garage and two vehicles were heavily damaged. Complete containment and control occurred within thirty minutes.

The occupants were alerted to the fire by the family dog, when they discovered the fire in the garage all occupants safely evacuated prior to the fire department arrival.

One firefighter suffered a minor ankle injury that did not require further medical care, no civilians were injured.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. A gift card from California Fire Foundation was provided for immediate emergency aid to the family.
