SAN MARCOS — Early investigations by San Diego County Sheriff’s Bomb and Arson unit have yet to reveal the cause of an overnight fire at Liz Bolton Stables where a home and several trailers went up in flames.

The remains of two people were found after the fire, which was reported at about 1:37 a.m. on Saturday, June 26, at 2635 North Twin Oaks Valley Road. Deputies from the San Marcos Sheriff’s station and local firefighters responded to the area and confronted a home and several trailers fully engulfed in flames, according to Sgt. Greg Hampton. Witnesses said repeated “explosion-like sounds” complicated the suppression effort.

After the fire was extinguished, one body was located outside a toy hauler travel trailer and the second body was found inside the trailer, the sergeant said.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of their deaths, as well as identification of the bodies pending notification of family. No deputies, firefighters, horses or other animals were hurt in the fire, according to reports.

“While the investigation is still in its preliminary stages and things may later change, the Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson Unit does not believe it is a criminal act,” said Hampton said. “At this time, the fire appears to be accidental.”
