OCEAN BEACH, CA.  On Sunday, October 18th, a fire broke out in an Ocean Beach garage and then damaged the nearby house and a boat.  It all happened before noon on Lotus Street, near Ebers.  The fire forced one person out of their home.

Our friend and local photographer Jim Grant arrived at the scene and took pics.  Jim also told us gas welding equipment was in the storage area…and a boat with a gas tank made this a little scary scene.

SignonSanDiego reported that:

The fire was extinguished at 11:30 a.m. Firefighters remained at the location because of concerns about hazardous materials that may have been in the garage, the dispatcher said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
