LA MESA -- Fire investigators could not definitively prove the cause of the Sunday afternoon fire that heavily damaged a duplex in La Mesa, but they suspect a space heater caused the blaze, according to Fire Investigator Adam Beardsley of Heartland Fire and Rescue.

The blaze broke out just before kickoff of the Super Bowl in the duplex located on Fourth Street just south of La Mesa Boulevard. Smoke from the blaze was noticed by customers on the rear terrace of nearby Johnny B's restaurant.

Fire officials are sharing the tips on a flier attached below to remind people of the dangers space heaters can cause on these cooler months.
