On Tuesday, January 15th at approximately 12:10 am, firefighters from the 29 Palms and Combat Center fire departments were dispatched to a reported residential structure fire in the 7500 block of Persia Avenue in the City of Twentynine Palms.
First arriving firefighters found heavy smoke and fire coming from the attached garage of a single-family residence with the fire beginning to extend to a travel trailer parked in the driveway. Firefighters made an aggressive attack to keep the fire from extending into the living area of the home. Although the garage, a vehicle in the garage, and the travel trailer were a total loss, the hard work of firefighters saved the interior of the home. The fire was declared under control 38 minutes after arrival of the first unit.
Four adults and two children were home at the time of the fire and escaped without injury. The American Red Cross responded and provided assistance to the residents. Fire loss is estimated to be $50,000. The fire started in the garage and the investigation into the exact cause of the fire is ongoing.
As firefighters fought this blaze, a second structure fire call was dispatched at 12:36 am for a space heater fire at a residence in the 5100 block of Encelia Avenue in the City of Twentynine Palms. One Twentynine Palms unit, manned by a volunteer firefighter, and three engines and a Battalion Chief from County fire responded to the call. On arrival of the Twentynine Palms unit and a county engine from Joshua Tree, the fire was determined to be out with only minor damage to the interior of the residence.
