REGION — No injuries were reported in a fire this morning at the shared home of San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher and former Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.
Firefighters evacuated the local leaders’ home and put out the quickly spreading blaze that reached their home in the 4800 block of Wightman Street in City Heights around 4:30 a.m., responders confirmed. It is believed that the fire started in an outdoor trash can.
Damaged from the flames was contained to the front of the home, as captured in an ABC 10 photo.

Earlier this week, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously elected Nathan Fletcher to serve as chairman, also voting unanimously for Nora Vargas as vice-chairwoman and Terra Lawson-Remer as chair pro-tempore.
The vote marked the second year in the row for Fletcher and Vargas in their leadership positions. Lawson-Remer replaces Joel Anderson as chair pro-tempore.
