STRUCTURE FIRE AT 5733 CLOVERHILL DRIVE
At approximately 8:35 p.m. last evening (Thursday), Brentwood Fire & Rescue personnel were dispatched to a structure fire at 5733 Cloverhill Drive near Cloverland Drive. Upon arrival Engine 1 reported flames and smoke coming from a steel garage of pole-type construction approximately 50’ X 100’ in size.
Crews set up an exterior defensive attack given the advanced stage of the fire and the fact that gasoline and tanks containing propane, acetylene, oxygen, and nitrogen were reported to be inside. Crews knocked down the fire quickly and it was reported under control within an hour.
The occupants called 911 when they noticed flames escaping from the front corner of the garage door. No firefighters were injured but one of the occupants received a small cut on his hand when he attempted to contain the fire by closing the garage door.
The Fire Investigator will be on the scene this morning in an effort to determine the cause of the fire. Initial damage estimates are in the range of $50,000.
