West Side Fire District

Around 5:00 am this morning, Hood River Fire & EMS responded to the 800 Block of Rand Road for a reported house on fire.
Upon arrival, firefighters found a barn fully engulfed in fire. The structure collapsed shortly after the firefighter’s arrival. Incident Commander Captain Manuel Irusta said, “upon arrival, the fire was in the upper portion of the barn when the roof collapsed. The crews did a great job of keeping the fire from spreading to the nearby trees.”
Hood River Fire & EMS was assisted by West Side Fire District and the City of Hood River Public Works. No loss amount has been determined at this time, but the barn is a total loss.

West Side Fire District

Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.

This week, we will be focusing on, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere!”

We will be sharing tips to help you with fire prevention and what to do in case you are involved in a fire.

Let's begin with Look...

•Look for places home fires can start and minimize those risks: Keep cooking areas clear of clutter, keep anything that can burn well away from heat sources, and make sure electrical outlets aren’t overloaded.

•Make situational awareness a habit. Always look for two exits from the location or building you’re in, and identify the quickest path to the outside in the event of an emergency.
