Residential Structure Fire
updated: Feb 28, 2014, 11:55 AM

UPDATE provided by the Santa Barbara Fire Department
February 28, 2014 11:40am

Early Morning Residential Fire

911 dispatchers received a report of a residential structure fire in the 1100 block of Carpinteria St. this morning at 0459 hrs. The Santa Barbara City Fire Department responded E2, E3, E1, Truck 1 and Battalion 714 to the incident, along with AMR medics and City PD. Upon their arrival, Engine 2 reported a well involved single story residential fire, known as a “working fire”. Engine 7 was dispatched to assist in the firefighting efforts. Smoke detectors had alerted the sleeping residents, who had evacuated the home prior to the arrival of fire crews. Firefighters on Engine 2 advanced an interior attack line into the structure and successfully extinguished the fire before it could advance into the living room. The fire was confined to the kitchen and front bedroom area, with “knock down” reported at 0511 hrs. Primary and secondary searches were performed by Engine 1 and Engine 7. With the interior search for occupants completed, an “all clear” was reported at 0514 hrs. One occupant was treated on scene for smoke inhalation but declined further medical treatment. Truck crews initiated an aggressive search for fire extension, tearing out charred portions of the wall and extinguished hot spots. Fire investigators are currently working on the cause of this fire.

Safety Message: Without a doubt, working smoke detectors in the home gave an early warning to the sleeping occupants, thus averting serious injury or death. Please take a moment to check your smoke detectors to be sure they are fully operational. “Take a second on the 2nd” of each month to test your smoke detector, replace the batteries at least once per year, and follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for replacing the unit, generally every 8-10 years.
