Multiple Fires Hit Lakeside Area

Lakeside: On Sunday, August 22, 2010, at 4:19 p.m., the Lakeside Fire District received calls about multiple vegetation fires burning along Lake Jennings Park Road near the dam. Two brush engines, three structural engines, an ALS medic unit, and battalion chief were dispatched to the fires. In addition, CalFire sent a full response to the fires.

Battalion 1 (Laff) arrived and located two fires burning along the roadside. The largest of the two fires was about one acre burning on the face of the dam. The other smaller fire was located near Julian Avenue. Engine 3 (Lake Jennings Station) arrived at the larger fire and started a hose lay on the northern end of the fire. E26s (Blossom Valley Station) took a position on the southern flank and started a hose lay.

Brush 2 (Eucalyptus Hills) and Brush 23 (San Miguel-Dehesa Road) arrived and assisted with the hose lays. Engine and handcrews from CalFire arrived to assist. Crew progress was hampered by the steep slope and loose footing.

The fire near Julian Avenue was extinguished by Engine 1 (Riverview Station).

In the midst of this operation some of the engines had to be pulled from the fire to respond to a new incident at Julian Avenue and Pino Drive. Crews extinguished another vegetation fire that consumed a quarter acre at that location.

Crews were then sent to a fire in the Wildcat Canyon area near Old Barona Road. Crews from Barona Fire responded and assisted fire investigators at the scene.

Currently all fires are being investigated.
