5 injured in fire at San Diego hotel

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say a fire at a San Diego residential hotel has injured five people and left at least 14 homeless.

The blaze erupted at 2:45 a.m. Monday at the Hotel Heritage on 9th Avenue.

Fire dispatcher Juliana Humphries says the fire was confined to the second floor and it took dozens of firefighters about 45 minutes to douse the flames.

Five people were taken to local hospitals but there's no immediate word on their conditions.

The three-story hotel was evacuated and at least 14 people have been at least temporarily displaced.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
