Structure Fire - 400 Block of Oildale Drive, Bakersfield

Just after 8:00 AM this morning, the Kern County Fire Department received a call for heavy smoke from an 1,100 square foot single-family home in the 400 block of Oildale Dr. A reinforced alarm was started at dispatch. The first arriving crew encountered a house with an attic fully charged with smoke and started an additional engine. The crew made entry through the front door of the house and conducted a search of the structure for possible victims. No victims were found and the house was unoccupied at the time. The firefighters extinguished the fire in twenty minutes. The fire caused $40,000 of damage, however $70,000 of property was saved.
