Central Zone Assists with Structure Fire in Descanso


On Tuesday, January 7th, 2014 at 2:09 a.m., the Heartland Communications Center received a call to assist the San Diego County Fire Authority with a structure fire in the 25100 block of Manzanita Ln in the Descanso area. Dispatched was Engine 25 from the Viejas Fire Department, and Rescue 3 from the Lakeside Fire Protection District.

Smoke pours from the front of the structure.
Arriving Fire Authority units reported a two story structure with significant involvement in fire. Crews quickly located the occupant and rendered medical assistance. With the arrival of more engine companies crews made an interior attack on the fire and continued to search for other occupants.

Fortunately the sole occupant had exited the structure, along with his dogs. Crews now faced an extended overhaul situation with significant fire loading in the all wood structure. Additional companies were requested  to respond to assist. The occupant was evaluated by AMR medics and transported to a local hospital.

Investigation of the fire will be handled by the San Diego County Fire Authority.
