Incident: Commercial Structure Fire


County firefighters responded late last night to reports of a possible structure fire at a commercial business located at the north end of Adelanto. Upon arrival, firefighters encountered a business filled with smoke, indicating a potential fire situation. Entry was gained after breaching security gates, leading to the discovery of high heat conditions and a smoldering fire towards the rear of the building.

Despite significant smoke and heat damage sustained by the occupancy, prompt action by the firefighters ensured containment of the fire, preventing further escalation. Thankfully, neighboring businesses were spared from damage, and no injuries were reported among firefighters or civilians.

The response effort involved three engines, one truck, and one chief, totaling 14 personnel. Additional assistance was provided by the City of Victorville. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the county office of the Marshall.
