Fire Erupts in Tow Truck Storage Yard, Damaging Vehicles (CA)


Recommended Posts

A fire that erupted Thursday in a Riverside tow truck storage yard damaged three vehicles and threatened a mobile home before firefighters stopped the flames.


The non-injury blaze was reported about 6 a.m. in the 4700 block of Hiers Avenue, near Wells Avenue, on the western edge of the city, according to the Riverside Fire Department.


Battalion Chief Michael Allen said three engine crews and a truck company, numbering about 20 personnel, were sent to the location and encountered a vehicle ablaze in the tow yard, with flames extending to two adjacent cars.


A mobile home was also in the fire’s path, and crews quickly deployed to protect it, Allen said.


“Firefighters stretched hose lines to contain the fire and protect the exposures,” he said.


Crews fully contained the blaze 30 minutes later and finished mopping up by 9 a.m.
