#Local935 #Firefighters with #SBCoFD Personnel performed a safe and aggressive attack on a single story residence. Crews were met with a fully involved garage extending in the main residence. Initial on scene resources dealt with multiple explosions from two 5 gallon propane tanks on the rear patio and an electrical service drop that was immediately secured by Southern California Edison after it fell from the residence. Roof construction consisted of lighweight truss and upon arrival of the first in company the decision was made to perform a defensive attack due to partial roof collapse. As crews obtained knockdown of the fire they transitioned to an offensive mode for mop up and overhaul. For this reason a Rapid Intervention Crew (RIC) was established and maintained throughout the incident.
Due to the continuous service and closest resource concept the incident was handled by units from multiple divisions as well as backfill of stations in the City of Hesperia.
The first due engine arrived within 5 minutes and had #fire knockdown in approximately 30 minutes. Red Cross was contacted for 6 adults and two children who were displaced. The fire was confined to the building of origin. No damage to surrounding homes or structures. No injuries to the public of fire department personnel.
