05/April/2018 Structure Fire C Shift

Incident # 18-02425 An unattended grass fire destroyed an approximately 800 sq. ft building near the intersection of Winchester Rd and Jefferies Hwy. Thursday evening 05-April at 20:54. Engine 19 arrived to find the building well involved. Firefighters deployed two handlines to extinguish the structure. The building suffered considerable damage. Apparently someone had been burning off the property most of the day. When the fire was reported there was no one watching the fire. The grass fire spread to the building and destroyed it. The building appeared to have served as a pump house and work shop at one time. The property was used as a mobile home park two decades ago. The building was not presently in use.  

Engine 5, Engine 19, Tender 1, Tender 19, Tender 26, Tender 27, Medic 19 and Battalion 1 responded. Battalion Chief Chris Jones served as Incident Commander.
