Big Bear Lake, California/September 20, 2018 ____  

A residential structure fire, located in Big Bear City, on Ashwood Lane was reported Thursday at approximately 12:34 P.M. 

Upon arrival, Big Bear Fire Department Crews observed a single-family, two-story dwelling with heavy smoke and flames coming out from two sides of the home. The Fire Fighters were able to confine the blaze to the structure of origin, preventing spread to adjacent residents.


Big Bear Fire Battalion Chief Brian Parham was on-scene and in-command of the response by Big Bear Fire Department, with assistance from CAL FIRE and the U.S.  Forest Service.  The fire required all units from Big Bear Fire Department to respond, causing a level zero draw-down. Back-up coverage was provided to the Valley by CAL FIRE and San Bernardino County Fire.


The residence was cleared with no occupants in the home. Big Bear Fire units continued fire suppression activity with complete knock-down obtained within approximately 35-40 minutes. Two Big Bear Fire Department Fire Fighters received minor injuries. 


The origin of the Ashwood Lane structure fire is under investigation by the Big Bear Fire Department.
