Lakeside Firefighters Assist Alpine at Residential Structure Fire

Alpine, CA - 

Lakeside firefighters assisted Alpine Fire at a fire in a vacant residential structure on Eltinge Dr. on the evening of April 7, 2016. Viejas Engine 25 was first on scene reporting smoke from the attic area. Crews forced entry to the home and pulled ceilings to access the fire in the attic. The fire was extinguished in approximately 20 minutes. Firefighters remained on scene for overhaul for two hours. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Attic fires can be some of the most complicated and labor intensive types of fires to fight.

Responding resources included: E17, Div 4702 (ACP); E25, Chief 5801 (VJS);  E26, E3 (LKS); T4, R5 (SNT); E7415 (SDF).
