 A late-morning fire damaged a vacant home Monday in a neighborhood next to Dos Picos County Park, authorities reported.

Flames began spreading through the two-story, 4,000-square-foot home near the intersection of State Route 67 and Via Penasco in Ramona shortly after 9:30 a.m., according to Cal Fire.

It took crews about a half-hour to get the non-injury blaze under control, said Brent Pascua, a fire captain with the state agency.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
