2 Alarm Structure Fire

San Bernardino Business



San Bernardino County Fire Department Crews were dispatched Friday night, at 11:37 P.M. to a reported commercial structure fire in the area of Mountain View and Central Avenues in the City of San Bernardino.


ME231 arrived at an address on Riverview Drive and South Mountain View Avenue to find a large exterior fire containing stacked plastic materials with a direct exposure to a large commercial building. Due to the fire involvement and immediate exposures, a second alarm was quickly struck, bringing much needed manpower and equipment to the blaze.

Fire Fighting Crews immediately deployed multiple attack lines, coordinating firefighting efforts to limit the spread, but found the fire had extended into a large metal commercial building. Fire fighters engaged in both interior and exterior firefighting efforts to suppress the fire, limit spread and search the building.

The fire was ultimately knocked down in approximately 40 minutes.  No occupants were found inside the structure. Due to a large amount of plastic liquid containers and  unknown substances, a # San Bernardino County Fire Department Hazardous Materials Team was requested to investigate the liquids, determine if intervention is needed as well as assist with decontamination if needed. Upon investigation they found no immediate hazards. 


San Bernardino County Fire responded with (9) Engines, (3) Truck companies, (3) Chief Officers, (1) Rescue, (1) Haz Mat & (1) Fire Investigator. Loma Linda FD assisted with (1) Engine. While fire fighter crews were committed to the 2-alarm fire, other #SBCoFD Engines were moved into vacant stations to provide station coverage. The cause and origin of the fire is under investigation by #SBCoFD-OFM Fire Investigators. No damage estimates were available at the time of the release. No injuries were reported to both firefighters and civilians.
