Frazier Park, CA

At 9:58 p.m. the Kern County Fire Department’s Emergency Communication Center received multiple calls reporting a house on fire. Fire engines were dispatched to the intersection of Mead Trail and Elliot Trail. The first arriving engine company encountered a two-story single family home, with flames visible on both floors. Forcible entry was required to access the property through a locked gate, after which an aggressive attack was made on the fire. Safety concerns from live downed power lines meant the interior search of the home, for potential patients, and fire suppression efforts needed careful coordination. Due to the well chosen actions by firefighters a quick knockdown of the fire and a thorough search for occupants was safely completed. Firefighters on the Mead Incident battled 19 degree weather, snowy/icy narrow roads, and numerous other safety hazards in the course of their duties. There were no injuries to civilians or fire personnel.
