Structure Fire - 1600 Block of Olive Drive, Bakersfield


Fire crews were called out to a vacant garage on fire. Due to the heavy smoke and flames seen from the road, additional engines were started to the fire. Upon arrival, crews were able to quickly put the fire out and prevent the spread of flames to the nearby house. The additional engines were then canceled. Crews will be on scene for some time to overhaul the structure and the Arson Unit was called out to investigate the cause of the fire.

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.
