This afternoon, Downey firefighters responded to a reported vehicle fire at an apartment complex located at 8000 Telegraph Rd. Units from Santa Fe Springs and Montebello Fire Departments also responded.
Two off-duty Downey firefighters observed the smoke column and reported the fire. They responded in their personal vehicle, alerted residents in the apartment above, and attempted to extinguish the fire using on-site portable fire extinguisher prior to FD arrival.
On-duty firefighters quickly extinguisher the fire and minimized further damage to the apartment complex. Noone was injured from the incident. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. #downeyfire#downey#fire#vehiclefire#cityofdowney#areafire#montebellofire#santafespringsfire#mutualaid#automaticaid#exposure
That’s the smile of a girl who finally got to put her first fire out! Got dispatched to a vehicle fire last night, truck was parked very close to the house and right under a tree. Thankfully no one was hurt, the house was saved and things can be replaced! Huge shoutout to my amazing crew, there’s not a group of guys I’d rather work with. #femalefirefighter#fiercefemales#mfd#melbournefl#firefighter#vehiclefire#ilovemyjob
