A blaze that erupted in a Lake Elsinore home Friday, Aug. 21, caused major damage, displacing the four occupants.

The non-injury fire was reported at 1:35 p.m. in the 31000 block of Canyon View Drive, just east of Interstate 15, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The agency said multiple engine crews were sent to the location and encountered flames on the side of the two-story house, extending to shrubs and a nearby fence.

Firefighters completely contained the blaze 20 minutes later, preventing the flames from reaching a neighboring property.

Officials said damage to the structure was extensive, requiring the three men and one woman residing there to find alternate lodging. The American Red Cross was requested to assist the victims.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
