Camino Canada: Firefighters from Lakeside's Lake Jennings fire station (fs3) responded to a reported vehicle fire at the park-and-ride on Camino Canada Rd. near Interstate 8 on Wednesday, May 26, 2010. The C-division crew from Engine 3 arrived to find a passenger vehicle with a well-involved engine compartment. The fire was extinguished using a preconnected hoseline and utilizing water from the 500 gallon tank on Engine 3.

Vehicle fires are among the many types of fires that Lakeside firefighters respond to every year.
