Just after midnight on July 30, 2014, crews from the Lakeside, El Cajon, and Santee Fire Departments where dispatched to a reported structure fire on Olde Hwy 80 near Pecan Park. Heavy smoke could be seen from the top of Lake Jennings Park Road. Engine 3 from the Lake Jennings fire station was the first engine on scene and reported heavy smoke and fire coming from a detached garage. The fire was quickly knocked down by first arriving units and there was no spread into the vegetation. Crews were committed a short time to overhaul the building and check for fire extension through the walls. The cause of the fire is being looked into.
