It took firefighters about 10 minutes Monday to put out a fire that damaged a home in a neighborhood just north of Balboa Park.

The non-injury blaze in the 1400 block of Brookes Avenue in Hillcrest erupted shortly before 10 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

The American Red Cross was called in to help one resident arrange for emergency lodging, SDFRD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
