The Double Fire Destroyed a Home and Displaces a Family Last Evening ~ Chip Dingman

Valley Springs, CA...The Double Fire in the 4,000 Block of Double Springs Road. destroyed a home, displaced a family and Red Cross was called to assist the family. This was dispatched at 6:45PM as a structure fire with possible wildland involvement. Up on arrival of the first in engine it was discovered that there was no wildland involvement, it was structure fire only. While firefighters made a quick attach on the fire it had already progressed into the attic and through the roof ultimately causing the roof to collapse and unsafe for firefighters to make entry into the structure to fight the fire. Once the firefighters had most of the fire knocked down they were able to them make entry into the structure to fight the fire from the interior.









Additional Photos and Details are Enclosed









Due to the fire in this structure 3 adults and 2 children were displaced. The Red Cross was contacted to assist them.

Dispatched to this fire were:

CalFire

San Andreas Fire Protection District

Calaveras Consolidated Fire Protection District

Mokelumne Hill Fire Protection District (Diverted to a medical call)

Water Tenders from San Andreas, Calaveras Consolidated, Mokelumne Hill

Also dispatched were 2 Tankers, Copter 404, Air Attach 440, 2 Crews, and a dozer. The crews and dozer were cancelled but the aircraft orbited the scene as a precaution.

      Perhaps but sometimes people who don't take care of themselves or their property are not deserving of our sympathy.

          Yeah, but there were grape vines growing less than 100' from the house, & we all know how flammable those are.

            Not a viable argument. Most of the lot were dead, the area full of waist deep weeds. Google earth tells the truth.

          The second sentence of the article clearly states: "it was discovered that there was no wildland involvement, it was structure fire only. "

            By luck it did not threaten the school and surrounding businesses and homes. Or the cattle in the fields around it. Google earth is your friend.

              Don't forget the P.G.% E. Valley Springs Sub Station across the road from the on fire structure. Electric for many of our communities.

                Power could have been shut off for a lot of us. Did you get your P.G&E. letter stating they would turn off power in fires and wind?

                Not a typo, the % was intentional. Go solar and do not hook into the crooked electrical grid if you can. If you hook in they will shut you off too.

                Our state, cities, counties need to own our electrical grid. It should be non profit. Proceeding to put the lines (long ago determined best practice) underground. When determined best practice of underground electric, it was for beautification of our state. Now it is a necessity for safety and quality of life. Time for P.G.%E. to go, right along with all the other electric and power companies holding us hostage to their profits. I could easily get started on the water companies, it is wrong too.

I was going to make a comment on weed eating, but were the people who live there elderly and not able too?
I hope no one was hurt.

        I love what the clapp is doing! And that is nothing, so I love it! I love mills too, and if I smell marijuana I go on crime sprees and loosen up at the same time for dirty doper sex. Then I paint pretty pretty pictures of doggies and kitty cats, cows and stick figures. Did I tell you I sleep on clapp and mills pillow cases while covering myself in a trump portrait comforter. Then the best of all is my dreams of ms alice, but I shall keep the detail all to myself. Ditto, I agree. Who am I?
