CAL FIRE SLO and San Luis Obispo City Fire officials responded to reports of a structure fire Monday.

The fire broke out on the 1600 block of Garnette Street at the Laguna Lake Mobile Estates at 7:31 p.m.

Crews originally responded to reports of smoke, but when they arrived, they discovered an electrical fire under the home.

Fire officials say they had to cut through the structure to extinguish the fire.

The homeowner says it was thanks to a smoke detector that they were able to call in the fire quickly.

“I just think the fact that that alarm went off went off and as soon as it went off I didn’t ignore it, some people will go take something and punch button on there or try to stop it instead of trying to see what was happening and but it was it was it was filling up with smoke very quickly at that point I opened as many doors as I could and then I got out of there," said Cynthia Rozamus.

Rozamus adds that an electrician came to the home on Monday to install a new breaker. A half an hour later the smoke alarm went off.

Nobody was injured in the fire.

Rozamus says she was the only person living in the house and she will stay with her son and his family.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire is under investigation.
