At 5:15 a.m. the Kern County Fire Department received reports of a structure fire at 8511 Beaver Drive, Bakersfield. In route, the call was upgraded to a reinforced response due to the number of phone calls. Crews arrived on scene to find a two story, single family home with fire venting through the roof. A second alarm was ordered to increase equipment and personnel. Second arriving crews deployed salvage covers attempting to protect property on the lower floor.

Crews made entry to the home and aggressively made an interior attack on the second floor. A search was completed finding no residents were home.  The fire was contained to the upper floor.
