If you happened to be driving north on the 5 freeway into Dana Point on Sunday, you might have noticed a plume of smoke rising from the hills north of the harbor. Tragically, the cause was a house fire that ended up killing two people. Both initially survived the fire, but later died from injuries.
According to the OC Register, the home was so packed with stuff that firefighters had difficulty getting into the house to rescue the occupants and even more difficulty getting them out. Even the exterior of the house had piles of debris all over the place. All the clutter may have fueled the flames, making the fire more intense and shortening the period of time that the couple could get out safely.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of the fire.
