A cigarette left burning on a balcony is the suspected cause of a residential fire that occurred on Friday at 22178 Vacation Dr., according to City Manager Chris Mann.
Units from Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department responded to the fire shortly after 11:30 a.m. Units arrived on scene to find smoke coming from the rear of the two-story residence.
The fire was quickly contained to a portion of the upstairs balcony and master bedroom. The smoke damage was limited to a portion of the second story and moderate fire damage to the master bedroom.
“One of the homeowners received minor smoke inhalation but refused medical treatment,” Mann said.
City of Canyon Lake Code Enforcement Officer Fred Lopez was on duty and responded to the scene. “No structural damage was observed, just a burned-out electrical outlet outside and smoke and water damage inside,” Mann said. “The owner disconnected power to the master bedroom, was advised to not occupy that room until it could be repaired, and was directed to contact the city’s Building and Safety Department for permits.”
