Just before 9:30 PM, the Kern County Fire Department received a call for a travel trailer on fire in the 4100 block of East Drive. While firefighters were en route, callers indicated that the adjacent shops were beginning to catch fire and the response was upgraded to a 2nd Alarm. When crews arrived, they located a fully involved travel trailer between two 1,000 square foot metal shops. The fire had already extended into one of the shops. Firefighters were able to quickly knock down the flames of the travel trailer and protect the shops from further damage. Additional incoming resources were cancelled. The fire was controlled in approximately 25 minutes. KCFD Fire Investigators estimate a $20,000 structure loss and they are looking into the cause of the fire.
