Just before noon, an electrical fire was reported in the 2200 block of Montello Street in East Bakersfield. Units from both Kern County and Bakersfield City Fire Departments responded to find one room in the home fully involved with fire. After ensuring that all occupants had evacuated the home, crews made an aggressive interior attack and contained the fire to a single bedroom. The cause of the fire appears to be electrical in nature. There were no reported injuries to occupants or firefighters. The home owner will be staying with relatives while the damage is repaired.
