Brush fire between Alturas and Aviation Roads quickly extinguished with multi-agency help

Issue 46, Volume 17.

Managing Editor


With the help of multiple agencies, a brush fire that erupted just before 11:30 a.m. today (Wed., Nov. 13), in Fallbrook was extinguished by 12:45 p.m.

The fire, which consumed about 1-1/2 acres, started in a wooded area surrounded by bare land with dry weeds. The parcel is located between Aviation and Alturas Roads, and surrounded by commercial buildings and apartment communities.

"One outbuilding on the property sustained some minor damage," said John Buchanan, public information officer for North County fire. Advertisement

"At this time, the fire is out, clean up is underway and both fire and Sheriff's investigators are looking into the cause."

Business owners in the area said the land involved in the fire is known to be frequented by transients. "The property owner is aware of that; he has been told," one business owner said.

With North County Fire, Camp Pendleton Fire, Cal Fire, and Oceanside Fire working together on it, the blaze was handled quickly.

No injuries were reported.

The wooded area needed to be thinned anyway. This was a more costly way of getting the job done though. I hope no one was injured in the fight. Again Thank you for your quick work. Happy Thanksgiving to all

Did anyone notice that our local Fallbrook Naval Station Police were first to arrive on scene and begin directing traffic? Good job to them.

Me # 9 Saying " Thank You " goes a long way. So you should go to McDonalds and say" Thank you " for doing their job, while your shoving a Big Mac in your mouth.

To De Luz Neighbor

Well Said !!!

I have to say that I travel through Camp Pendleton on occasion to visit family and the base is probably the most orderly well kept place I've ever seen. If only the civilian areas and our cities could be that clean and safe.

P.S. I admit I'm a bit biased having been in the Corps; but still, am I wrong?
