Man injured in Solana Beach fire

By City News Service

A man suffered burns on 50 percent of his body in an apartment fire in Solana Beach early April 16, authorities said.

The fire, which occurred at 833 South Cedros Ave., erupted around 2 a.m., according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Tomaiko.

Tomaiko said firefighters and deputies responded to a call reporting a smell of smoke coming from the adjacent apartment to the reporting party.

Upon arrival deputies observed smoke coming from the roof vent of the apartment building. Deputies assisted the fire department with breaching the locked apartment door. While the fire department evaluated the residence, deputies began evacuations and evacuated six apartments. Firefighters located a male victim inside the apartment with obvious burn injuries of his upper extremities.

Firefighters rescued the injured man and took him to UC San Diego Burn Center to treat serious burns covering 50 percent of his body, Tomaiko said.

Because a serious injury occurred, the sheriff’s bomb arson unit was called to investigate the cause of the blaze.

— Some of this information was taken from a Sheriff’s report.
