A two-story home in Tustin sustained significant damage Monday in a fire that injured one man and displaced six adults, authorities said.
The fire was reported in the 13300 block of Epping Way just before 1:50 a.m., said Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi. The fire started in an upstairs bedroom of the two-story home and spread to the backyard of the property, where there were a number of combustibles stored, including boxes, furniture, blankets, mattresses and a barbecue.
“The glow from the fire could be seen for miles,” he said.
Forty firefighters put out the flames in 70 minutes, Concialdi said.
One man tried to put out the fire and suffered first- and second-degree burns on his arm and hand, the captain said. He was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana for treatment.
The cause of the fire was under investigation, Concialdi said. There were no smoke alarms in the home.
