House Fire In North Long Beach

By Jackawa Jackson | February 11, 2010

  On Feb 10, 2010 at 9:12 pm, LBFD responded to a reported structure fire at 239 W Artesia Blvd in Area 11 A (Council District 9).  First in Engine 12 reported a working fire in one room of a small single-family dwelling.  Engine 12 took command while firefighters quickly extended a 1-1/2" attack line through the front door, extinguishing the fire in a matter of minutes.  Truck 11 provided ventilation and smoke removal.  R 12 assessed the female owner for possible smoke inhalation; she refused treatment and transport.  Because of the aggressive attack by firefighters, damage was limited to a clothes washer and dryer, the clothing inside and on top of the dryer, and paint/smoke damage throughout the house.  Crews removed water and debris from the house.  The owner and her young son will stay with family.
