Two Suffer Smoke Injuries After Single-Alarm Fire this Morning

Residents of single-family home taken to Seton for further examination.

The North County Fire Authority arrived in northern Pacifica this morning to extinguish a single-alarm house fire. 

The first firefighters to arrive at 379 Mina Lane at 8:34a.m. reported seeing a fire and heavy black smoke billowing from the single-family residence, said NCFA spokesman Matt Lucett.

After making entry into the building, fire companies--in total, eight fire companies, two chief officers, one fire investigator and one transport ambulance responded--put out the blaze with hoses, he said. 

Two residents had evacuated the home and suffered only minor smoke injuries. They were evacuated by paramedics and transported via ambulance to Seton hospital, Lucett said. Fire personnel were unharmed.  

The cause of the fire is still being investigated by the Fire Prevention Services Bureau.

Lucett said NCFA wants to remind residents to make sure they maintain smoke detectors in their home.
