Lakeside Firefighters Make Quick Work of Residential Structure Fire

At 1950 hours on Wednesday, July 21, 2010,  the personnel at Lakeside's Riverview fire station (fs1) were outside cleaning things up for the day when they noticed dark smoke coming up over nearby buildings.  Just then the dispatch came out for a residential structure fire in the 12600 block of Julian Ave in Lakeside.  On arrival, engine 1 observed heavy smoke and fire visible from the back of the single-story duplex. Firefighters quickly established a water supply and set up for fire attack. Crews discovered that the back porch was completely involved with fire and that it had started to spread into the house.  Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire limiting the fire spread to the rear of the dwelling. Lakeside Fire District investigators determined the cause to be a cigarette that had fallen in the cushions of some patio furniture. There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters.
