Fire causes damage to home

An attic fire caused $250,000 in damages to a Costa Mesa home on

Tuesday afternoon and sent one dehydrated firefighter to the

hospital, officials said Wednesday.

Firefighters, responding to the call that came in at about 3:30

p.m. from the 2800 block of Serang Place, saw flames in the attic

when they arrived. They were able to put out the fire by removing the


metal roofing material and cooling the fire, officials said.

There was only one resident inside the home, and he was able to

run out, officials said. The firefighter, who experienced cramping,

was transported to Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian.

It took 27 firefighters about 15 minutes to extinguish the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
