ADELANTO(VVNG.com)- One person died in a house fire that broke out in the middle of the night in the city of Adelanto. At approximately 2:26 a.m. fire crews were dispatched to a home on northeast corner of Villa Street and Delicious Street. Firefighters were on the scene to the occupied home within minutes of the call being received. Upon arrival the 3 engine companies, a truck company and a battalion chief found the home with heavy smoke and fire coming from the front bedroom window of the home.
Firefighters began to fight the fire in order to slow down the progression of the fire through the home as the truck company made it’s way onto the roof to perform vertical ventilation, allowing the smoke, heat and gasses to escape upwards. The fire was confined mostly to the front bedroom with the remainder of the home left with major smoke and heat damage throughout the interior.
According to the San Bernardino County fire department press release, the original reports of children, as well as “multiple” people being trapped, was unsubstantiated once crews were able to search the residence. The damage to the home, including its contents, at this time is estimated at approximately $100,000.
The body of an adult was later found in the front bedroom, where the fire was concentrated. It is unconfirmed if the body is that of a male or female victim. The firefighters also found two dogs who were also found deceased in the home.
According to Captain Jay Hausman, the San Bernardino County Fire Department is working with the San Bernardino Sheriffs investigating the scene. When asked if they believe the fire was on caused by arson he stated “It is customary that when there is a fatality that a full arson investigation is done by the Sheriffs Office”.
No injuries were reported to firefighters at the scene. San Bernardino County Fire investigators working in conjunction with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Dept. Arson and Bomb detail are on scene currently investigating the fire at the time of this release.
The San Bernardino County Fire Department would like to remind the public to always pull to the right when an emergency vehicle approaches. Stay vigilant when driving to not just emergency vehicles but other vehicles, especially motorcycles that are not easily seen on the road.
There is no further information at this time, information will be updated as it is received.
