Lakeside Firefighters Battle Fire at Eastbound Neighborhood Grill

Lakeside, CA -

At 4:08 a.m. on Saturday, March 26, 2016, Lakeside Firefighters were alerted to a reported commercial structure fire in the 10000 block of Maine Avenue in the old downtown Lakeside business district. Engine 2 from the nearby River Park fire station was on scene in under five minutes reporting moderate smoke showing from the roof of the Eastbound Neighborhood Grill, a popular local bar and restaurant.

Lakeside Division 4103 (Hisaw) arrived simultaneously, assumed Maine Incident Command (IC), and began directing firefighting operations. With the quick arrival of subsequent companies, E2's crew stretched a hoseline to the smoky interior of the building to discover a well-advanced fire in the kitchen. It took firefighters around ten minutes to knock down the fire. An additional hoseline was stretched to the roof by the Truck 4 crew to extinguish fire that had also extended there. The quick response and aggressive operations limited fire damage to the kitchen. The rest of the occupancy did have some smoke and water damage.

Lakeside Firefighters would like to acknowledge our automatic-aid partners for their timely assistance in controlling this dangerous fire. Units attending this incident included: E1, E2, E3, M2, Div. 4103, Div. 4105, Chief 4101, Support 4140 (Lakeside); E4, T4 (Santee); E8, E9 (Heartland). Additionally, Heartland Engine 10 was moved to cover Lakeside Fire Station 2 during the incident. San Diego Sheriff's deputies also assisted.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
