Burbank Fire responded to a garage fire on Alameda Avenue just east of Glenoaks. Upon their arrival they discovered a garage to the rear of a single story house with fire showing. The next engine company in was Glendale’s Engine 27 and they supplied Burbank’s Engine 11 with a water supply as a truck company went to the roof to ventilate. The fire threatened an exposure to the west but with quick action the garage fire was knocked down and held in place. The fire department used a Unified Response involving companies from Glendale Fire and Burbank Fire and it worked seamlessly. The cause is still under investigation with the damage listed at $40.000 to the structure and the contents $10,000. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. The six engines and trucks of firefighters that responded were under the Direction of Battalion Chief Dave Schmitt.
While individual residents may collect rain water, the City of Burbank is barred.
