Incident Narrative

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Late Wednesday night, Kern County firefighters were dispatched to reports of a fire inside a commercial building. Firefighters arrived on scene to find a multi-unit, single-story building with large amounts of smoke pushing out of two units and light smoke coming from a third. A second alarm was requested to increase the number of firefighters responding. Saws and forcible entry tools were used to breach doors and gain access to the interior. Once inside the priority was clear, complete searches for possible victims and stop the fire from spreading any further. With several teams rotating in and out of the building, using multiple hoselines, firefighters were able to quickly establish that there were no victims inside and knockdown the fire. Once the fire was extinguished the damage could be assessed. The fire had damaged much of the contents within the building, including multiple offroad UTVs. The damages are estimated to be near $200,000 while the estimates for property saved through fire suppression amounted to $600,000. There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters on scene. The official cause of the fire is undetermined but faulty electrical components are suspected.
