Oceanside, CA–Firefighters battled a two-alarm residential fire that quickly filled the air with heavy smoke Sunday in Oceanside.
The fire was reported around 6:30 p.m. in the 2700 block of Oceanside Blvd. The first arriving engine found fire coming from the front of a small single-story residence, Oceanside Fire Department Battalion Chief Justin Klopfenstein said in a news release.
