firefighters put out attic fire in Hesperia Saturday

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Fire crews responded to a house fire in an attic Saturday morning.

There were reports of smoke in the attic at a house in Hesperia on the 13000 block of Sunny Ridge Street at about 10:06 a.m., according to San Bernardino County Fire Captain Jeremy Kern.

Firefighters arrived on the scene within 7 minutes and were able to put out the fire in 20 minutes.

They responded with a total of 17 personnel, which included 3 engines, 1 truck, 1 medic squad, 1 battalion chief and an ambulance.

One person who was inside the home was able to escape uninjured before firefighters arrived.

“Our crews first priority is always life, as we enter any home for fire attack we initiate a search to confirm it has been evacuated,” Capt. Kern told Victor Valley News. “In this case, the home was clear upon search.”

Kern said everyone should develop and practice a fire escape plan for their household.

“Remember, never return to a burning building for any reason. Your belongings can be replaced – you can’t!,” said Kern.
