Fire destroys home in Fontana | News

A fire destroyed a bungalow in Fontana on March 3, according to the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

No one was injured in the blaze, which broke out at 11:31 p.m. on Block 8800 on Bennett Avenue, according to Battalion Chief Mike McClintock.

Firefighters launched an aggressive attack, working both from the roof and inside the house. Firefighters gave priority to a home check and preventing the spread of fire to vegetation and adjacent structures, McClintock said.

While working on a fire attack, crews discovered that a lighted electrical line had fallen off, posing a risk to responding personnel. Edison of Southern California was asked to mitigate the risk.

All home checks were negative. The fire was brought under control in about 30 minutes. The structure has suffered major damage and is uninhabitable.

Three residents were evacuated by the fire and the Red Cross was asked to help with temporary housing assistance and support.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
