At approximately 11:26 p.m. firefighters from the Kern County Fire Department were dispatched to a reported building on fire. Upon arrival they found a detached garage on fire. The garage was well involved with fire and threatening to spread to other nearby buildings. Firefighters positioned themselves between the garage fire and other buildings to stop the spread of fire and quickly gain control. Due to the fast response of firefighters, damage to other nearby structures was kept to a minimum. There were no injuries reported to civilians or fire personnel. No persons were displaced as the building was vacant.
