Carpinteria Structure Fire
updated: Nov 09, 2012, 8:13 AM

By the Urban Hikers

At about 2:20 am on Friday morning, Carpinteria/Summerland Fire received a call about a house on fire on Delta Ave. Residents of the house had been awakened by the crackling noise of a fire. Upon investigation, the residents found that the garage in flames. The family, consisting of parents, son and a dog, made it out of the house unharmed.

Firefighters found the garage fully involved in flames when they arrived. The fire was burning incredibly hot, scorching the lawn all the way to the sidewalk and burning a van in the driveway. The fire also extended into the attic of the home. Fire crews were able to contain and extinguish the attic fire with minimal fire damage to the house. The home did suffer water and smoke damage, however. The roof of the garage was completely destroyed and the contents of the garage were a total loss. Thankfully no injuries were reported.

Assisting Carpinteria Fire were firefighters from Montecito Fire Department and Ventura County Fire Department. Santa Barbara Fire was also called out but they were not required for the suppression efforts. Santa Barbara Fire did however reposition an engine to Montecito's main station to cover Montecito while both Montecito engines were deployed in Carpinteria.

Approximately fifteen firefighters lead by three chief officers fought the fire. Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department provided traffic control at the scene.
