At approximately 8:00 AM the Kern County Fire Department received multiple calls for an explosion and fire in an apartment complex. A second alarm dispatch was started due to smoke being seen from a distance as engines were responding. The first engine arrived on scene to a two story 10 unit apartment complex with smoke showing from the bottom floor. Crews made an aggressive attack on the fire confining the fire to the room of origin, preventing the fire from damaging any of the other nine apartments. A primary and secondary search was conducted and was all clear. All occupants made it out of the structure safely. Cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no injuries to firefighters as a result of this fire.
