Entire Force Fights San Bernardino Fire
Two alarms were sounded and the entire off-shift of the San Bernardino, Cal., Fire Department was called to fight a fire which broke out at 3:15 a.m., in a local furniture store. Fire followed an explosion which ripped a hole in the roof. Embers from this fire started a number of small blazes. Crews from the state forestry station were called to help the firemen.
Four engine companies were used. Fourteen lines of hose were laid, one wagon pipe, and a portable deluge set.
It is reported that excellent cooperation was received from the police and all public utilities.
