Fire damages outbuilding in Rancho Santa Fe


On Sunday, March 2, at 1:24 p.m., firefighters from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District responded to a report of smoke in the area of Via De La Valle and Calzada Del Bosque. As they approached the scene, firefighters could see a column of smoke and upon arrival at the scene found a vehicle fully involved in flames under the carport of an outbuilding.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to the rest of the outbuilding, but the carport and adjacent bedroom did sustain some heat and fire damage. No one was in the building at the time.

Crews remained on scene for about two hours performing salvage and overhaul work. Solana Beach Fire Department assisted on the call. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
