At approximately 4:27 p.m. the Kern County Fire Department was notified of a possible structure fire in the 2000 block of Oleander Street in Delano. First arriving firefighters found a wind driven fire in an attached garage and several occupants suffering from smoke inhalation. A downed power line in front of the structure also added to an already hazardous situation. Firefighters carefully proceeded with fire hose and controlled the fire in about 30 minutes.

Before firefighters arrived, an alert neighbor became aware of the fire and entered the smoke filled house to assist the occupants out. Two patients with symptoms of smoke inhalation were transported to Delano Regional Medical Center for observation and treatment.
