Cal Fire/San Luis Obispo County - Strucure fire

Fire destroys home, building

An electrical problem caused a fire that destroyed a residential and commercial building at 406 Aloma Way on the Nipomo Mesa early Monday morning, said a spokeswoman for Cal Fire/San Luis Obispo County Fire Department.

The fire did an estimated $800,000 damage to the 5,000-square-foot building, half of which was a home and half of which was a commercial unit occupied by the Brad Anderson Construction Co. An unidentified civilian suffered first-degree burns over 8 percent of his body and second-degree burns over 1 percent of his body as he was attempting to move items out of the garage, the spokeswoman said.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment by private vehicle.

A firefighter also sustained a minor injury when he stepped on a nail, but he returned to duty, she said.

The fire was reported at 6:36 a.m., and the structure was fully involved when firefighters
arrived at the site off Halcyon Road northeast of Cypress Ridge Golf Course.

Two engines, two support vehicles and a hand crew from Cal Fire/County Fire Department were assisted by one engine each from Arroyo Grande, Oceano and Cal Fire/Pismo Beach fire departments.

The fire was fully extinguished by noon, the spokeswoman said.

Investigators from Cal Fire and Paso Robles Fire Department are investigating the cause, she said.
