Vehicle Vs. Commercial Structure


On Sunday, June 26, 2011, at 10:42 a.m., the Lakeside Fire Protection District received a call that a vehicle had impacted the McDonalds restaurant located in the 13500 block of Camino Canada. Initial reports indicated that the vehicle had entered into the "playland" area. A commercial response was sent that included three structural engines, a truck company, a rescue company, and ALS medic unit, and a battalion chief (Laff).

Firefighters evaluate the structure for hazards.
On the arrival of Battalion One, it was observed that an SUV had entered the structure. Engine 8 (El Cajon Fire) conducted an initial assessment of the interior and discovered only the driver required medical evaluation. Engine 1 and Medic 1 (Riverview Station) were assigned to render care and evaluate the stability of the structure.

A building inspector from the County of San Diego was requested to evaluate the structure. CHP is currently conducting the investigation.

A total 9 personnel from Lakeside responded to the incident, assisted by personnel from the Santee, El Cajon, and Barona Fire Agencies.

  1. Job well done Lakeside, Santee, El Cajon & Barona. Glad no children or anyone else was hurt in this scene. It could have gone much worse if it was during lunch rush and the play area filled with kids.
