Vegetation Fire on Harritt Rd

Lake Jennings: On Friday, August 27, 2010, at 7:25 p.m., the Lakeside Fire District received a call of a vegetation fire in the 9300 block of Harritt Rd. Reporting parties stated the fire was burning toward homes located on Telkaif St. Two brush engines, three structural engines, an ALS medic unit, and battalion chief were dispatched to the incident.

Engineer Scott Smith cuts a line around the fire behind homes on Telkaif St.
On the arrival of Battalion 1 (Laff), a fire was located on the embankment behind a mobile home park. Residents in the park had managed to extinguish the majority of the fire with garden hoses.

Witnesses were able to identify a juvenile who started the fire. The child was interviewed on the scene and will be referred to a fire diversion program.

Lakeside was assisted by units from El Cajon Fire and CalFire. Fortunately most units were not need and subsequently canceled. Engine 3 (Lake Jennings Station) handled the mop-up and investigation.
