Large fire breaks out at manufacturing facility in Adelanto Saturday night

ADELANTO, Calif. ( — San Bernardino County Firefighters responded to a structure fire at a manufacturing business in Adelanto Saturday night.

It happened at about 9:11 pm, on May 18, 2019, at a business called MFG Glass located at 9400 Holly Road in Adelanto.

Responding firefighters reported seeing a large column of smoke from several miles out. Upon arrival, they located a large commercial concrete building that was lit up with smoke and fire showing from the rear yard.

“As crews made access into the secured property they found a 50 x 100 foot area involved with fire. Large fiberglass molds appeared to be the main material involved,” stated Captain, Public Information Officer Jeremy Kern.

Firefighters worked extensively to contain the exterior fire and limit the spread to any additional material and protect nearby structures.

Kern said as the incident developed, additional resources were requested from surrounding county fire service areas to help protect nearby structures.

“Moderate wind conditions contributed to fire spread as well as ember cast to the north,” stated Kern.

Firefighters had the fire knocked down in 45 minutes.

“Due to the material and size of the involved area crews remained on scene late into the night to ensure the fire was fully extinguished,” stated Kern.

No injuries were reported to firefighters or civilians.

Three engines, one truck company, one chief officer, one investigator and one county fire dozer totaling 16 personnel were assigned to the incident. A county dozer was called in to assist with overhaul operations.

The fire remains under investigation by the county office of the fire marshal.
