Ventura Fire Units Respond to Garage Fire

On November 27, at 7:45am, Ventura fire units were dispatched to a reported garage fire with extension into the residence in the 1600 Block of Ventura Ave. Firefighters arrived within 4 minutes of dispatch and found a single story/multi family home with heavy fire and smoke showing from the garage and the attached homes.

The Santa Ana winds played a critical role in the rapid spread of the fire into the structures and immediately threatened multiple homes and vehicles directly adjacent. Firefighters extinguished the fire with a coordinated effort of vertical and horizontal ventilation to keep the fire from spreading throughout the structures.

The fire was controlled 30 minutes after initial dispatch, and the house was confirmed to have no victims inside. In order to control the incident, Ventura City Fire units were assisted by: Ventura Police Department, Oxnard Fire Department, American Medical Response, as well as Ventura County Fire Department.
