SAN DIEGO (AP) - Firefighters battling a blaze at a San Diego house found no furnishings and hundreds of marijuana plants inside.

Fire-Rescue Captain Joe Amador says it took crews about 15 minutes to douse the flames Sunday at the three-bedroom home in Palm City.

Amador says firefighters discovered an elaborate pot-growing operation with hundreds of plants in each room of the house. He says police were notified.

The Union-Tribune newspaper says (https://bit.ly/1YbelFZ ) investigators determined the fire started when a bulb in a lamp fell from the ceiling onto some of the plants.

The house sustained about $10,000 worth of damage.
