At 0112 hours, Engine 2 was alerted to respond on the working structure fire at 22873 Dement Lane in California.

Engine 23 made the response and to the Wildewood Development (which backs up to the address), grabbed their own water source and the crew stretched the 400' attack line through the woods, added two “racks” to it to create a 600’ attack line, and advanced it into the basement division of the residence.

The crew assisted with extinguishment and overhaul before being released from the incident.
