Fire Destroys Trailer in Hollywood

September 1, 2011

 At 1808 hours while Engine 74 was responding to an Automatic Fire Alarm in Station 1 first due, they were re-routed to a reported Trailer Fire in the 709 Box Area. Station 7, Station 1, Station 9, Station 3, Water Supply 5, and EMS Station 79 and 19 were dispatched to 25160 Timber Ln for the reported Trailer Fire. Engine 72, Engine 74, Truck 7, Brush 7, Utility 7, and Chief 7B responded on the Box with 21 volunteers. Due to several trees down across the roadway Brush 7 and Engine 72 were sent back first with Brush 7 cutting a path to the fire and Engine 72 laying a supply line. Crews arrived on the scene finding a single wide trailer with fire showing from all sides. Lt. Bean Established the Hollywood Command and advised all units that this would be a defensive operation. The assignment was reduced to Station 7, the Tankers from 1 and 9, and EMS Station 79. Once a water supply was established the crews operated with 2 handlines to knock the fire and complete overhaul. Units remained on the scene for over 2 hours performing overhaul and assisting the fire marshal. The scene was turned over to the State Fire Marshal and all returned to quarters.

This residence was damaged due to several trees landing on the structure and the family was removed by Hollywood Volunteers the night before during the Hurricane.
