Fire destroys Monterey Park home

A fire Saturday destroyed a Monterey Park home and sent one man to the hospital, World Journal (世界日报) reports. While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, the Chinese publication is reporting the house may have been overcrowded.

The Monterey Park Fire Department received the report around 3 p.m. and rushed to the house at 518 S. Garfield Ave. The fire was contained to a back room and patio area and between seven and nine residents were displaced, Monterey Park Fire Capt. Neal Martin told the San Gabriel Valley TribuneOne man was sent to Garfield Hospital with second-degree burns, according to World Journal, and the Red Cross assisted police with temporary shelter for the other residents. 

Police estimate the loss of personal belongings to be $120,000 and the loss of property to be $400,000-500,000.

The four-bedroom, 1500-square-foot home contained at least 10 beds, according to World Journal. The owner bought the house about 10 years ago for $490,000 and rented the rooms to Chinese immigrants. When police asked for the number of residents living in the home, the owner was unwilling to answer until officers said the count was for shelter assistance.
