Fire burns Rancho Santa Fe home

An unoccupied Fairbanks Ranch home was destroyed by fire Jan. 10.

At 9:09 p.m. on Jan. 10, firefighters responded to multiple reports of a house fire in the 17000 block of Calle Serena (formerly reported as the 6000 block of Via Cordoba). When they arrived on scene, firefighters could see thick smoke and flames coming from the garage on the lower level of the house. They quickly began attacking the fire and shortly thereafter called for a second alarm.

Firefighters initially entered the 12,000-square-foot home, which was undergoing renovations and unoccupied at the time, to battle the blaze, but they were forced outside due to unsafe conditions. Because they could only fight the fire from the exterior and there were flammable construction materials within the building, it took approximately six hours to knock down the fire. Firefighters remained on scene overnight into the late morning putting out hotspots and mopping up.

A total of 11 units responded from Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Vista and San Diego. One firefighter sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
