Structure Fire - 1600 Block of Olive Drive, Bakersfield

CURRENT SITUATION: Ridgecrest, CA - Just before 1:30 this afternoon, the Kern County Fire Department received multiple calls for a garage on fire. A reinforced structure response was started.  First arriving crews reported heavy smoke from the garage. Fire crews entered the residence with a hose-line and attacked the garage fire from the kitchen, containing the fire to the garage. The fire was controlled in approximately 10 minutes. Two adults and two teenagers were displaced by the fire and have been taken in by family in the area.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Fire fighting efforts were hampered by a heavy fuel load of items stacked floor to ceiling in the garage. No working smoke detectors were at the residence, and the resident was alerted of the fire only when he went into the garage.
