December 17, 2016 - House Fire

On December 17th at 11:45 MVFD responded to a request for mutual aid from our sister station Alpine Fire in regards to a structure fire with acreage involved. Before arriving on scene MVFD was notified of structure collapse Engine 41 returned to station and Brush 43 continued on to assist with mop up operations. While on scene MVFD units responded to a secondary incident involving the wind blowing the roof off of a home and landing on an electrical line. AEP quickly disconnec...ted power and scene was cleared. Units then returned to original scene to finish with mop up. Excellent work by Alpine Fire whose FireFighters have had a very long couple of days. Reminder to everyone we will be experiencing heavy sustained winds this evening and freezing temps if you see or suspect a fire call BCSO immediately so we can get moving. There also is an emergency burn ban currently in effect so until further notice no outside burning. Thank you all for your support. Stay warm, stay safe and have a great night.
