TWO FIRES IN MORONGO BASIN OVER WEEKEND; ONE DOG KILLED

Morongo Basin firefighters were busy with two house fires over the weekend, including one in which a dog was killed. According to County Fire Battalion Chief Scott Tuttle, Yucca Valley Fire Station 41, assisted by firefighters from Yucca Mesa, Joshua Tree, and CalFire, were called just after 2 p.m. Sunday to the mobile home park in the 7400 block of Kickapoo Trail, where they found heavy flames coming from the living room area of a mobile home. Tuttle said nearby homes were threatened by the blaze, but firefighters managed to confine the fire to the home of origin and had it under control in 22 minutes. The two occupants suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to Hi-Desert Medical Center. One dog died in the fire; a second dog survived. Tuttle said the home is a total loss and the cause is under investigation.
On Saturday, Twentynine Palms firefighters, assisted by the Combat Center, Wonder Valley, Joshua Tree, and Yucca Valley fire stations, were called at 9:40 a.m. to a fire at a home in the 72100 block of Winters Road in Twentynine Palms. Tuttle said the home was well-involved with smoke and flames when firefighters arrived, but they had the fire under control in 18 minutes, and were able to save the small house. There were no injuries. The cause is under investigation.
