Structure Fire - 2100 Block of Rosamond Boulevard, Rosamond

Firefighters arrived on scene at a convenience store off Hwy. 14 in Rosamond to find a vehicle that was about 50% involved on fire under the fuel pumping area near the pumps. A Kern County fire dispatcher was directing a 911 caller how to shut off the fuel pumps to keep the fire from spreading. Firefighters were able to quickly knock down the fire and kept the fire from spreading into the store. Firefighters protected the scene, as it was determined to be an intentional fire. Kern County Sheriffs Deputies apprehended a suspect a short time later and worked with investigators from the KCFD Arson Unit who took over the case. The suspect is now in custody.
