This New Year’s Day fire in the 1400 Block of Buena Vista caused $15,000 damage after an alert citizen saw smoke coming from the front door of a single story residence and quickly notified a passing Burbank Police Officer. The fire department sent three engines, two trucks, and a paramedic RA and an investigator, all under the direction of Battalion Chief Kenet Robertson. Once on scene the firefighter extinguished a small fire near the front door involving some Christmas items and also rescued three dogs and brought them to safety with the assistance of Burbank Police Officers. (Below) Police Officer Gevork Mirakyan assisted bringing the pets to safety. The cause is under investigation.
