UPDATE (1:35 p.m.) - Firefighters were able to prevent a house fire from spreading to other nearby buildings Monday morning in Oceano.

Heavy smoke and flames were coming from the two-story building in the 1500 block of 22nd Street when firefighters arrived.

A resident two blocks away said they could even see the flames from their window.

"It was pumping out a lot of smoke," explained Chief Steve Lieberman, Five City Fire Authority. "And then, yes, you can see the homes are so close together in this neighborhood that we're immediately worried about exposures that threatened other homes. So a lot of resources were dispatched and they're here and the crews did a great aggressive attack, knocked down the fire.”

Everyone inside the home was able to get out safely, according to fire officials.
