Lakeside Firefighters Respond to Vehicle Fire with Extension to Residence

Lakeside, Ca-

Early on the evening on Thursday, May 17, 2012, Lakeside firefighters were dispatched to a reported vehicle fire in front of a residence on Amato Drive in Lakeside. On the arrival of Engine 1 (Riverview fire station), firefighters observed that the vehicle fire had extended into the garage of the residence with an exposure to the second floor above. The Engine 1 Captain (Lowe) immediately requested a full structure assignment consisting of 3 additional engine companies, 1 truck company, 1 medic unit, and division chief.  The Engine 1 crew quickly extinguished the vehicle fire and made access to the garage, limiting further fire spread.  On the arrival of additional fire companies, crews assisted with salvage and overhaul operations checking the rest of the house for fire extension and protecting personal property.  The cause of the fire is under investigation and no injuries were reported.

Lakeside units assigned to this call were Engine 1, Engine 2, Medic 2, and Division 4103.  Other agencies assisting were San Miguel, Heartland Fire Rescue, and CAL Fire.
