Fire Rips Through Closed Down Victorville Coco’s Restaurant (Video)

VICTORVILLE – San Bernardino County firefighters rushed to a fire at the closed Coco’s Restaurant located at 15570 Park Avenue East at around 9:55 p.m.

Following the initial and later confirmed report of the fire being at the Coco’s Restaurant, subsequent reports came in reporting that the fire was at a nearby hotel. Early reports indicated that screaming for help was heard and someone may have been trapped inside of the restaurant that was suddenly shut down last spring. When fire officials arrived at the over 6,000 square foot structure they determined that the screaming for help heard was a patron at the motel next door.

Firefighters went to the roof to provide vertical ventilation,  while others attempted to make entry into the restaurant. The firefighters had difficulties making entry due to it being boarded up to prevent illegal entry by those seeking shelter. Approximately 23 fire personnel arrived at the scene to assist with fighting the blaze, which caused a plume of smoke and flames that can be seen from miles away. The building was cleared of occupants during the primary search.  The fire was knocked down at around 10:15 p.m. and a secondary search confirmed that no on was inside of the structure.

No injuries were reported to firefighters or civilians. The cause of the fire and estimated damage remains under investigation at this time. Information will be updated as it becomes available.
