Lakeside Firefighters Battle Residential Fire

Lakeside, CA - 

A report of smoke and flames from the rear of a residence brought a first-alarm structure assignment to the 9500 block of Single Oak Drive in Lakeside early on Saturday evening, November 3, 2012. Engine 1 (Riverview fire station) was on scene in less than 6 minutes reporting a working fire in a single-family residence. Firefighters had to force entry on the front door of the vacant house to access a well-advanced fire that had taken hold of several rooms at the rear of the dwelling. The interior fire attack was coordinated with roof ventilation and firefighters quickly got a handle on the fire. A primary search of the residence confirmed that the building was vacant. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Lakeside firefighters were assisted on this fire by our automatic aid partners from Santee and CalFire. Units attending this incident included: E1, E2, E3, M3, Div 4106, Support 4140 (Lakeside); E4, T4, R5 (Santee); E3382 (CalFire).
