VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): Four disabled adults were displaced after a fire made their group home temporarily uninhabitable early Thursday morning.
A residential structure fire was reported in the 14400 block of Mojave Lane near Lorene Drive Thursday morning. Per scanner traffic the report was made at around 4:21 a.m. indicating that a garage was on fire.
Upon arrival just three minutes later firefighters found the approximately 1200 square foot single story home with smoke showing from the garage and attic.
Firefighters conducted a primary search, which came up clear of any occupants then immediately went into an attack mode. It was determined that the fire was an active attic and garage fire, so firefighters worked to prevent spread to other areas of the home. SB Fire Department Captain, Mike McClintock said, ” Firefighters engaged in an aggressive interior attack combined with vertical ventilation containing the fire to the garage and attic.”
The fire was fully extinguished at around 4:35 a.m. at which time firefighters performed a secondary search, and looked for extensions. Firefighters will remain on scene for mop up and a San Bernardino County Fire Investigator will be investigating the cause of the fire.
Three Engines, one Truck Company, one Brush Patrol and a Battalion Chief responded to the incident. The estimated damage is approximately $20,000.
There were no injuries to Firefighters or civilians. The Red Cross is being called to help temporarily place the four disabled adults while repairs are being made. No further information is available at this time, information will be updated when it is received.
