Firefighters Respond to Fire at Victorville Business

VICTORVILLE – A Victorville commercial structure fire caused major damage but no injuries on Monday night. 

The fire that was reported shortly after 8:00 p.m. at a vacant business located at 15663 Village Drive near Tawny Ridge Drive next door to the Martinez Auto Glass, showed dark smoke from over 2-3 miles away in each direction. Flames could be seen shooting vertically from the rooftop of the single-story structure from blocks away, from both north and south of the location.

When firefighters arrived with the 2nd alarm response they found the structure well involved in flames. The firefighters immediately began fighting the fire using an offensive attack, which was used until the primary search came up clear of any occupants and conditions prevented them from continuing to do so.  Soon after the attack switched to a defensive attack, which was used to keep the fire from spreading while fighting the fire.

San Bernardino County Fire Captain Jeremy Kern said that both the primary and secondary search came up clear with no victims inside the commercial structure. The fire was knocked down by around 8:45 p.m., but extensive mop up was necessary to ensure that the fire would not spark back up. “At the height of the incident seven, Engines, three  Truck Companies, one Medic Squad, four Chief Officers, one Fire Investigator and one Heavy Rescue responded to the 2-Alarm Fire,”  San Bernardino County Fire Department Captain Jeremy Kern said.

Southern California Edison (SCE) quickly responded to secure utilities. No injuries were reported as a result of the fire. The cause of the fire and estimated damages are unknown at this time. Information will be updated as it becomes available.

    So sorry to hear about Martinez glass business being ruined by this fire. It was just about 2 weeks ago that they came to my house and installed a windshield on my vehicle. I am so very sorry for this loss and hoping the family can rebuild or relocate.
