Vehicle fire damages garage in Rancho Santa Fe


On Tuesday, April 29, at 11:23 p.m., firefighters from the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District (RSFFPD) responded to the report of a vehicle fire in 15000 block of Via Del Alba in Rancho Santa Fe.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a vehicle, which was parked next to a detached garage, fully engulfed in flames. Due to the fact that the fire was starting to spread to the roof of the structure, the captain requested a first alarm response. Crews from Del Mar, Encinitas, and Solana Beach Fire Departments worked with RSFFPD to quickly extinguish the fire and prevent it from further spreading to the garage.

No injuries were reported. Damage to the structure and vehicle was estimated at $12,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
