Baldy Mesa House Fire Leaves Family Displaced

BALDY MESA-(VVNG.com): A house fire tore through a home in the 9200 block of Greasewood Lane Saturday morning. At 4:26 a.m. a male occupant called 911 to report that there was smoke and fire coming from the roof.

San Bernardino County firefighters arrived to the residence within 10 minutes and discovered heavy smoke and fire showing from the roof of the single story manufactured home. All occupants of the home had self evacuated however as a precaution, firefighters completed a primary and secondary search of the home, which both were clear.

Low water pressure from the lines hampered the firefighter efforts at some points. It took eighteen firefighters just under 35 minutes to extinguish the fire and firefighters remained on scene for mop up.

Upon an inspection of the home, firefighters determined that the fire was an attic fire. An investigator and Southern California Edison were called to the scene. Due to the home being a manufactured home, vertical ventilation was not necessary, but horizontal ventilation was used to fight the ferocious blaze.

Per scanner traffic, firefighters were checking to see if the occupants needed Red Cross assistance, but they left the scene during the fire and the firefighters on scene were attempting to locate them. There were no injuries reported as a result of the fire.

The house was a complete loss since the fire consumed the majority of the attic space according to fire officials. The estimated dollar amount of the loss is unknown at this time. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
