1 21 18 Meadow View Fire

BIG BEAR LAKE, CA/January 22, 2018– A residential structure fire was reported for Meadow View Drive and Marina Point Lane in Big Bear Lake at approximately 9:32 p.m., Sunday, January 21, 2018. Upon arrival, fire crews observed the approximately 1,500 square foot, single-story, single family residence, well-involved with flames visible on the Northwest side of the home. Due to extensive fire damage in the roof area that caused a partial collapse of the roof, firefighters were prevented from gaining immediate access to the home, taking approximately 45 minutes to suppress the fire.

Big Bear Fire Department responded to the fire with three engines, two ambulances and 13 crew members. CAL FIRE assisted in combatting the significant blaze. CAL FIRE also provided coverage for other incidents throughout the area while Big Bear Fire Department resources were committed to this incident. Battalion Chief Brian Parham was on-scene and in command of the response. Assistant Chief Maltby and Fire Prevention Officer Nick Bruinsma provided command assistance.

The home was occupied by the owner who self-evacuated. No injuries were reported, though the home suffered significant damage. The origin of the fire was in the chimney chase; however, the cause of the fire is still under investigation by Big Bear Fire Department.
