Structure Fire - 400 Block of North Dennison Road, Tehachapi

CURRENT SITUATION: Tehachapi, CA - Just before 2:30 this afternoon, the Kern County Fire Department received multiple calls for a fire inside of a trash sorting facility. First arriving crews reported tires and debris on fire inside of a 15,000 square foot structure. Fire crews deployed hose lines and established a water supply, bringing the fire under control within 10 minutes. The fire resulted in approximately $1,000 in damage to a conveyor belt. The structure sustained minor heat damage to overhead skylights.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The KCFD Golden Hills Fire Station is a seasonal fire station that is remaining open through the winter due to extra staffing levels. In today's fire, the quick arrival of extra fire personnel and apparatus helped save the structure. Although the cause of this fire is unknown, as we lead into the winter season, the Kern County Fire Department reminds residents to be sure that coals from the fireplace are completely cold before disposing.
