Thursday afternoon, the Big Bear Fire Crew responded to a reported structure fire in Big Bear City, located in the 800 block of Elysian Boulevard at shortly before 12:00 P.M. Upon arrival of fire crews, smoke was visible from the exterior of the structure.

Quickly, the Big Bear Fire Fighters extinguished the flames within approximately 15 minutes to bring the fire under control.  The occupants of the house were treated for minor smoke inhalation. It appears that the cause was due to the unintentional ignition of the occupants’ couch.
