Bakersfield, CA

Shortly before 12:30 p.m., fire department emergency dispatchers began receiving calls about a home on fire. Fire personnel were dispatched to the 500 block of Kirklees Court. The first fire engine to arrive saw large amounts of smoke and fire in the attached garage. Action was taken by firefighters to prevent the fire from spreading to the main living areas of the home. The swift response and a well chosen strategy kept the fire isolated to the garage and parts of the attic. One vehicle inside the garage was also destroyed by fire. No injuries to residents or first responders.
