Firefighters Contain Brushfire in Lucerne, One Home Damaged

Lucerne, CA –Last week, San Bernardino County firefighters responded to reports of an unknown type fire at the 11,000 block of Kendall Road in the community of Lucerne. As firefighters left the station, smoke could be seen several miles away.

Upon arrival, Medic Engine 8 found a quarter acre of brush burning in light to medium fuels with a moderate rate of spread. One home was immediately threatened by the advancing fire. A full first alarm vegetation response was requested which brought additional resources and firefighters to the scene. Initial crews deployed hose lines to protect the structure that was at risk.

The exterior portion of the building sustained damage, with some extension into the attic space. Quick action by the initial crews kept the fire from causing further damage. The fire was ultimately contained to approximately half an acre, with several piles of debris and other trash requiring extensive overhaul.

No injuries were reported among firefighters or civilians. The Red Cross was requested to assist with the needs of the occupants. Cal Fire and Apple Valley Fire District assisted with one engine each. San Bernardino County Fire responded with two engines, one water tender, one chief officer, and one paramedic ambulance, totaling 10 personnel.

The cause remains under investigation.

County Firefighters Respond to Early Morning Attic Fire

Hesperia, CA – Last week, San Bernardino County Fire responded to reports of a structure fire at the 14,000 block of Orange Street in the City of Hesperia.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a single-story home with smoke and fire showing from the attic. As firefighters deployed hose lines and gained access to the structure, an established attic fire was found running through the entire home. Initial priorities were to confirm evacuations, conduct a primary search, and deploy hose lines to limit any fire spread. Truck crews went to the roof to support interior firefighters with suppression efforts. Additional storage was found in the rafters specifically in the garage, this additional fire loading contributed to the fire spread and difficulty in suppression efforts with limited access for firefighters. A hose line was taken to the roof to aid and fire suppression efforts. A primary and secondary search of the home was conducted, and it was determined to be all clear of occupants.

As knockdown was achieved, a grow operation was found in the garage. Additional steps were taken to secure utilities and power with Southern California Edison. The Sheriff's Department was requested and is working with County Office of the Fire Marshal on the cause and origin.

San Bernardino County Fire responded with four engine companies, one truck, one chief officer, and one paramedic ambulance, for a total of 17 firefighters.

Firefighters Respond to Structure Fire in the City of Hesperia

San Bernardino County Fire responded yesterday afternoon to reports of a potential structure fire at the 14,000 block of Primrose Place in the City of Hesperia. Upon arrival, firefighters observed smoke emanating from a residential home, particularly from an attached garage to a single-story dwelling.

Firefighters initiated an offensive fire attack, deploying lines and gaining access to the property. As they approached the structure, moderate smoke conditions were evident throughout. Upon entry, firefighters discovered a contents fire that quickly spread to a significant portion of the interior space within the building. Additional crews were mobilized as smoke conditions rapidly evolved.

In tandem with interior crews engaged in fire suppression, a team ascended to the roof for vertical ventilation, aiding in enhancing visibility and reducing heat levels within the structure. Their coordinated efforts proved successful, containing the fire to the attached storage garage where it originated.

During the operation, several cats were found within the affected structure and removed. Animal control services were promptly requested to assist the residents with their pets. The heavy fire loading within the storage area initially posed challenges to suppression efforts, necessitating extended overhaul operations.

The response effort involved three engines, one truck, and one battalion chief from the county, totaling 14 personnel. The City of Victorville Fire Department provided assistance during the incident. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the county office of the fire marshal. Fortunately, no injuries were reported among firefighters or civilians.

Firefighters Respond to Commercial Fire in Hesperia

Hesperia, CA: #SBCoFD responded to reports of a possible fire at the 14,100 block of Main Street near Topaz Avenue just after midnight on Friday. Upon arrival, flames were observed emanating from the roof of a multiple-business commercial strip. As firefighters gained entry into the occupancies below they encountered cold smoke to the floor with limited visibility.

As additional units arrived, it became evident that the fire had originated in the void space of the building's façade. Due to the fire's location, accessing the area of origin proved difficult. Firefighters made access to the roof and deployed hose lines from ladder trucks to suppress the flames while utilizing chainsaws to gain access to the void space in the roof. Multiple sprinkler heads within the attic were activated, aiding in containment efforts. Despite the significant water damage sustained by the businesses below from the sprinkler water flow, the fire was kept from spreading laterally through the open space that extended across the building. No injuries to civilians or firefighters were reported.

Assistance was provided by the Victorville Fire Department. A total of seven engines, two trucks, two battalion chiefs, one medic ambulance, and two fire investigators, comprising 33 personnel, were mobilized to the scene.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the County Office of the Fire Marshal.

NEWS: San Bernardino County Fire Receives Generous Vehicle Donation to Support Community Outreach and Support Teams

SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, CA - The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District (SBCoFD) is proud to announce the acceptance of a substantial donation from Arrowhead Credit Union through the ArrowHeart Foundation, a transit vehicle valued at approximately $36,870. This generous contribution will significantly enhance the operations of the Community Outreach and Support Team (COAST) Program.

This vehicle will be instrumental in transporting individuals, including the unhoused or those experiencing a mental crisis, along with their belongings, to crisis centers or appropriate facilities. The donation aligns with the Fire District's commitment to operate in a fiscally-responsible manner and to prioritize the safety, health, and social service needs of San Bernardino County residents.

"We are thankful to Arrowhead Credit Union and the ArrowHeart Foundation for their generous support of our COAST program. This donation is not just a vehicle; it's an important resource that will greatly benefit the residents of San Bernardino County,” said Fire Chief Dan Munsey. “With this addition to our fleet, our COAST program can extend its reach and provide timely, compassionate care to those in mental health crises. This partnership exemplifies community collaboration at its best and underscores our shared commitment to enhancing public service and safety."

The COAST program is a collaborative effort between County Fire, local law enforcement partners and the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health. The program offers a new level of care for community members experiencing mental health crises. Since its inception, COAST has made significant impacts, including the successful COAST1 program in the City of Fontana, the COAST2 program in the City of San Bernardino, and the COAST3 program serving the unincorporated communities in the East Valley Division.

Each County Fire COAST team member is a handler of a CARE Team therapy dog. These dogs can help ease the hesitancy of a person in crisis towards law enforcement and emergency services. Therapy dogs help deescalate crises, allowing behavioral health personnel to address individual needs effectively. Patients are then moved to mental health facilities for ongoing care by the county’s behavioral health team. This ongoing support aims to reduce future crises and the need for a law enforcement or fire/EMS responses. It provides resources for coping with future mental health crises and helps keep patients out of jail and emergency rooms.

The San Bernardino County Fire Protection District reminds residents that help is always available for those suffering from or encountering someone in a mental health crisis. The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is accessible by dialing 9-8-8, and in immediate danger situations, dial 9-1-1.
