Early morning fire rocks Costa Mesa neighborhood

One person was treated for minor injuries and seven were displaced after a fire at a Costa Mesa triplex early Saturday.

About 12:23 a.m., the Costa Mesa Fire Department received a call of a lower level apartment on fire at 392 Woodland Place, between 20th and 21st streets, according to authorities.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the number of respondents


Three fire engines, a truck company, an urban search and rescue unit and a battalion chief — totaling 19 people — were part of the first response. The first fire engine arrived in six minutes, Fire Battalion Chief Kevin Diamond said. A second alarm of three engines, two trucks and a battalion chief from Newport Beach were called in later.

 The investigation unit is working to find the cause, he said. Damage costs won't be known until Monday at the earliest.
