Crews respond to Hall Street structure fire


The cause of an early morning structure fire is still under investigation, according to a statement from the Susanville Fire Department.

Around 4:20 a.m. Tuesday, June 25, the Susanville Fire Department, along with other agencies, responded to a structure fire located on Hall Street.

Upon arrival, Engine 621 assumed command of the scene and reported a fully involved structure with residential exposures threatened. The department made a mutual aid request for the Janesville Fire Protection District, CCC Fire, and Standish-Litchfield in addition to the automatic aid from Cal Fire and the Susan River Fire Protection District.

According to the statement, crews made an aggressive fire attack on the structure and the additional units provided exposure protection until the fire was controlled and efforts could focus on the main structure involved.

There were many items on the exterior and interior of the burning structure which hindered initial firefighting efforts and increased time on overhaul operations, the statement read.

Six fire engines, five support vehicles, one OES air trailer and 26 fire personnel were on scene.

Cal Fire, Susan River Fire Protection District, CCC Fire Department, Janesville Fire Protection District, Standish-Litchfield, Lassen County OES, the Susanville Police Department, LMUD and Susanville Public Works Department assisted the Susanville Fire Department.

The fire is under investigation and the cause has yet to be determined.
