Lakeside Firefighters Make Quick Work of Kitchen Fire

Lakeside, CA -

Just after the 8:00 a.m. crew change on the morning of November 23, 2010, Lakeside Fire District units were dispatched to a  residential structure fire in the 9000 block of Calle Lucia in Lakeside.  Due to the lingering morning fog, firefighters were unable to visualize any smoke as they approached the scene.  The Engine 3 crew from the Lake Jennings fire station (fs3) arrived on scene first to find a condo complex with light smoke in the area.  When entry was made, dark smoke billowed from the front door.  Engine 1 from the Riverview fire station (fs1) layed a supply line to engine 3 from a nearby hydrant and assisted with interior firefighting operations.  Truck 4 (Santee) was assigned to assist with ventilation. Firefighters quickly located and extinguished the fire containing the damage to the kitchen.  The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

Units on scene were Engine 3, Engine 1, Engine 2, Medic 1, and Battalion 1 from Lakeside.  Other agencies that assisted were Engine 19 from San Miguel, Truck 4 from Santee, and Engine 3382 from Cal Fire. 

Firefighters wait for the investigators to finish their work.
