Firefighters

Firefighters finish extinguishing a fire which broke out in a garage at a house in Fontana on the morning of June 10.

Firefighters were able to quickly contain a fire which broke out at a house in Fontana on June 10, according to the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

No injuries were reported as a result of the blaze, which began in an attached garage of a single story residence in the 9500 block of Oleander Avenue shortly before 10 a.m.

Medic Engine 72 responded to the scene as heavy smoke was seen in the area. The fire briefly spread into the attic but was then contained within 15 minutes, and the rest of the house was preserved, said Battalion Chief Mike O'Bier.

The contents of the garage, including motorcycles, were heavily damaged. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

----- EARLIER THAT MORNING, another fire was reported on Slover Avenue in the southern area of the city. About five semi trailers were damaged in a commercial structure fire, but crews successfully saved a trucking supply business, the Fire Department said. Slover between Beech and Hemlock avenues was closed to traffic before being reopened later in the day. There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

----- ALSO, on June 9, a small vegetation fire broke out in northwestern Fontana. The fire, which was located alongside the northbound Interstate 15 Freeway between Sierra Avenue and Duncan Canyon Road, was limited to less than one acre. No structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. The cause was under investigation.

Fire officials are very concerned about the potential for fires because of the hotter weather conditions as summer approaches.
