VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) An illegal marijuana grow half of mile away from the Victorville Police Department was discovered after a house fire Thursday afternoon.
San Bernardino County Fire responded to reports of a tree on fire at the corner of Amargosa and Cholame Roads at about 12:18 pm, on August 10th.
When firefighters arrived, the fire had already spread to nearby vegetation, a shed, and started to catch the home on fire.
After an aggressive attack firefighters had the fire knocked down by 12:45 pm.
The fire is believed to have been caused by a power line that fell and caught dry brush on fire.
During the search of the property, officials stumbled across an illegal indoor marijuana grow inside the detached garage.
The Sheriff’s Marijuana Enforcement Team responded and assumed the investigation. Bunches of marijuana could be seen being carried from the garage to a nearby trailer.
At this time it’s unknown how many plants were recovered and if any arrest were made.
Information will be updated as it becomes available.
