Three People Sustain Significant Burn Injuries in San Bernardino House Fire

SAN BERNARDINO – Three people were injured in a San Bernardino house fire on Monday morning. At around 8:04 a.m. San Bernardino County Fire Department firefighters were dispatched to the home near 7th and Meridian in the City of San Bernardino. While en route, dispatchers received additional information stating that there were multiple parties suffering from burns at the home in the 700 block of North Lassen.

The first Medic Engine arrived at the scene approximately 5 minutes from the call to find the two-story home with fire and heavy smoke showing. They also located three residents who were able to evacuate the home, who were suffering from burns. “Crews worked diligently on both patient care and mounted an aggressive interior attack to suppress the fire and search for additional victims,” said San Bernardino County Fire spokesman Eric Sherwin. “Crews on the roof worked on vertical ventilation to help improve visibility and to evacuate smoke. No additional victims were found in the search.”

The three adult patients who suffered significant burns were rushed over to the waiting ambulances to be transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The firefighters were able to knock the fire down in around 20 minutes. Heavy damage to the patio and both floors of the home were reported. Rialto & Colton FD assisted in the firefight. A total of (5) Medic Engines, (1) Truck Company, (2) Battalion Chiefs, (1) Fire Investigator and (2) AMR Ambulances responded to the fire. Fire cause and origin is under investigation by San Bernardino County Fire Office of the Fire Marshal. Damage estimates to the home and contents are approximate $150,000.
