A man in his 60s died in an apartment fire in Cortez Hill, a downtown community, early Friday, San Diego officials said.
The fire was reported at the Cortez Hill Apartments on Fourth Avenue at Beech Street around 12:35 a.m.
San Diego Fire-Rescue Department crews arrived minutes later and had most of the fire put out in about 10 minutes, city officials said.
The victim was the only person inside when firefighters arrived. Officials didn’t say where he was found, and he was not identified.
The fire caused an estimated $2,000 in damage.
