Suspicious Fire on Interstate 8

Glenview: On Thursday, July 15th at 8:45 PM, the Lakeside Fire District sent three structural engines, one brush engine, an ALS medic unit, and a battalion chief to a reported vegetation fire on Interstate 8 in the area of the Los Coches off-ramp.

On the arrival of Engine 3 (Lake Jennings Station) they discovered a fire on the eastbound off ramp at Los Coches Rd. With the assistance of Engine 19 (San Miguel Fire, Bostonia) the fire was held to about a quarter acre.

The Fire District received reports that the fire was caused by a pyrotechnic device that may have originated in the general area. Crews are also investigating a report that the device may have originated from a vehicle on the freeway. If you have any information about this fire please contact Lakeside Fire Investigators at 619-390-2350.
