Two killed in Encinitas house fire identified

Authorities released the names Wednesday of two senior citizens killed in a North County house fire.

Edna Lambert, 83, and 81-year-old Nick Rodriguez, an amputee who used a wheelchair, were unable to get out of their single-story home on Regal Road in Encinitas after it caught fire about 7:30 p.m. Monday, according to fire department officials and the county Medical Examiner’s Office.

Lambert and Rodriguez died of smoke inhalation as flames engulfed the residence. The house was a complete loss.

Due to the extent of the damage, investigators were unable to determine the cause of the blaze, Deputy Fire Chief Scott Henry said.

Investigators set the monetary losses at $275,000 to the structure and $100,000 to contents.
