Structure Fire - 2600 Block Lupine Street, Lake Isabella

Fire crews were dispatched to a double wide mobile home fire. On arrival, firefighters were faced with the structure approximately fully involved with fire. The heat and flames were being pushed by the prevailing winds onto an adjacent structure, which was 25% involved several small spot fires were beginning to involve vegetation around the property. Rio Bravo Crew 7, our local Interagency Hotshot Crew arrived on scene and set to work assisting fire crews. Firefighters made an aggressive attack on the structure fire and protected the adjacent home and garage. Firefighting efforts were made more dangerous when live electrical wires were in the close vicinity and gusting wind fanned the flames. The homeowner was at home at the time of the fire, a representative from the Salvation Army responded, but offers of help were declined.

 Due to the swift actions of the first arriving crews, this fire was prevented from become a fast moving affecting several home in close proximity.

Additional Information:  With rising temperatures and the current drought situation, Kern County Fire Department wishes to urge all to continue to use extreme caution in order to prevent any fire
