Early Morning House Fire in Rancho Cordova

Sacramento County, CA – Just after 5:30 this morning, Metro Fire crews were dispatched to house fire on the 2200 block of Maxine Way in Rancho Cordova. First arriving crews reported heavy fire coming from multiple sides of the house and initiated fire attack. Multiple hoselines were used to control the fire, while additional crews performed a search for victims.

Two victims were located with significant burn injuries. One of the first two arriving units was a Metro Fire Suppression Ambulance, with Firefighter/Paramedics operating on an additional hoseline. Once the victims were located, the Ambulance crew quickly began patient care, and transported the most critical victim. An additional ambulance arrived on scene to transport the other patient.

A total of twenty-eight firefighters worked to extinguish the fire and ensured seven occupants were safely evacuated. Arson investigators responded to the scene; the cause is currently under investigation but they have ruled out arson.

Remember that smoke alarms do save lives. Make sure to test yours regularly and replace the batteries when you change your clocks. Additionally, closing doors before going to sleep helps dramatically reduce the spread of fire. Remember to “Close Before You Dose”.
