Peninsula guest house catches fire

Newport Beach firefighters extinguished a blaze that caused about $20,000 in damage to a guest house on the Balboa Peninsula on Wednesday morning.

Eight units responded after a call came in about 11 a.m. reporting the fire in the 1,000-square-foot quarters behind a primary residence in the 300 block of L Street, Newport Beach police said.

Firefighters contained the flames to the roof of the guest house and were able to put out the blaze within about 20 minutes of the call.

No one was hurt, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
