VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — San Bernardino County Firefighters doused a fire at a duplex in Victorville just after midnight on Wednesday.
At about 12:11 am, firefighters were dispatched to reports of a vehicle fire in the front yard of a residence in the 16000 block of Green Hill Drive in Victorville.
According to San Bernardino County Fire Captain Jeff Allen, the first arriving engine arrived at the scene in six minutes and reported a well-involved vehicle and the front portion of a single story duplex involved in fire.
County firefighters ensured there was no threat to life by performing a quick primary search on neighboring apartments before engaging in fire attack.
A total of 16 personnel responded and the fire was knocked down in approximately 30 minutes. No injuries were reported by firefighters or civilians.
Victor Valley News member Alany Brambila lives in one of the units and said everything they owned burned to the ground. In a Facebook post, Brambila said she and her 10-year-old daughter ran out wearing no shoes and thanked her neighbors who gave her a pair of sandals and the two men who helped her and her family get out safely.
“County firefighters in the city of Victorville were committed on this incident for approximately 2 hours. Under County Fires move up and cover plan the core stations in Victorville remained covered and ready to respond to additional calls for service until additional fire engines became available,” stated Allen.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
