Company 3 responded to a reported garage fire on Crestwood Drive. Upon arrival, found heavy fire showing from an attached garage of a 1.5 story, single-family dwelling with extension into the living spaces of the structure. Fire was knocked down in the garage and handlines were advanced through the A side entrance to knock down the fire in the living spaces on both floors. Another handline was advanced to the C side to extinguish fire running the soffit. A 500′ x 4″ line was laid from a hydrant at Crestwood Dr. and Hillview Dr. Two vehicles in the driveway (pickup and sedan) were also damaged during the fire. Two occupants were in the residence at the time of the fire. One occupant was treated for minor smoke inhalation and another was transported to the ED with severe burns and smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire was a backfire from a motorcycle engine that was being worked on in the garage.
