Lakeside Firefighters Make Quick Stop on Small Grass Fire

Lakeview -

A small grass fire near Lakeview Road and Los Coches Road brought a quick response from Lakeside Firefighters on Wednesday, June 1, 2011. Heartland Communications received numerous 911 calls and an additional report from Barona Fire District Chief Sandoval (4801) who was in the area just before 4:00 p.m. Firefighters from Lakeside's Lake Jennings (fs3), Blossom Valley (fs26), and Eucalyptus Hills (fs2) fire stations quickly surrounded the 1/2 acre blaze with hoselines. While the fire came very close to nearby houses, no structures were damaged.

The Lakeside Fire District would like to remind homeowners to clear flammable vegetation around their homes and create a defensible space. Check THIS WEBSITE for more information.

The fire burned very close to several houses.
