LSFD Spokesperson: Tabitha Navarro


Structure Fire; INC#87203; March 24th, 23:44 PM; Camino Del Sol; LSFD companies were dispatched out to Camino Del Sol for a house that was completely engulfed in flames. Our firefighters worked to put out the structure fire for approximately one hour and twenty minutes. Our air unit communicated with our ground units to coordinate an attack on the upper exterior of the building, so they had a more accurate location to aim their attacks. They worked their way through the exterior fire, and moved on to the interior fire. During the course of this incident, one of our units was injured, and rushed to All Saints General Hospital. Once units were able to make their way through the interior, they found one male unconscious, and he was pronounced deceased. Cause of the fire is unknown, and is still being investigated by our arson unit. Fire Station 11. Dispatched LSFD units: RA11, E11, T11, COPTER 1, SQ11.
