Quick work by Fire Fighters kept the small fire from extending, although smoke caused by the interior wall fire was bad enough to take the life a family cat. Damage from the fire was estimated at $50,000 to the contents and $50,000 to structure. There were no injuries to Fire Fighters during this fire.

The second fire was reported Friday afternoon at 4:59 pm

Friday afternoon Burbank Fire Fighters were called to the 1300 block of N. California Street to a reported shed fire behind a house. When firefighters arrived they approached the fire and heard several popping sound and retreated. The fire fighters determined the popping sound was live ammunition rounds exploding. The decision was made to attack the blaze in a defensive mode and keep firefighters in a safe distance from the live rounds going off.

The cause of this blaze and the one on Thursday are currently being investigated by Burbank’s Arson Investigator.
