Redlands Firefighters responded to a structure fire in a single-story home Sunday night, Nov. 3. One person was treated on the scene for smoke inhalation.
Crews arrived in the 900 block of East Brockton Avenue shortly before 9:30 p.m. Sunday to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the rear of the single-family residence. The fire was extinguished in about 25 minutes. Crews remained on scene for approximately two hours and 45 minutes. In addition to Redlands firefighters, three firefighters from San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the blaze.
The home was occupied and the family was able to escape safely prior to firefighters’ arrival. A female resident complained of possible smoke inhalation. She was treated at the scene and declined transport to a hospital.
Damage was estimated at $250,000 to the property and approximately $35,000 to contents of the home.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
