Costa Mesa apartment fire injures one

A weekend fire at a Costa Mesa apartment complex injured a bystander and displaced two residents, authorities said Monday.

The fire was reported in the 1300 block of Adams Avenue about 2 p.m. Saturday.

When city firefighters arrived, they spotted smoke billowing from a second-story window. Firefighters ventilated the room, which restricted the fire from spreading to other parts of the unit, officials said.

A man burned his feet while trying to extinguish the fire; paramedics treated him at the scene and transported him to a local hospital.

Twenty-six fire personnel responded to the fire, which was extinguished in 20 minutes.

The cause of the blaze was unknown, but the Fire Department's Arson Investigation Unit is investigating.
