On Thursday, March 22, 2018, at 8:56 p.m. Santa Monica Firefighters responded to a report of a house fire at 918 22nd Street.
The first Engine Company arrived 5 minutes and 28 seconds later and found a vacant one-story residential home well involved with fire. Firefighters mounted an aggressive interior attack on the fire and simultaneously searched for victims that may have been trapped inside. Fortunately, none were found.
It took 28 Santa Monica Firefighters 19 minutes to knock down the flames, which consumed a majority of the structure and came dangerously close to a neighboring home. The house had been unoccupied for some time, so no one was displaced by the fire. One Firefighter was injured during the incident and was treated on scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
