Acampo structure fire quickly contained
ACAMPO — A structure fire of a building that could been seen from Highway 99 was quickly contained early Friday evening that led to one very scared dog.
According to Woodbridge Fire Department Chief Steve Butler, at 6:26 p.m., there was a report of a structure fire on the south end of E. Frontage Road, off Acampo Road near Highway 99.
“There was a lot of smoke showing,” said Butler as he oversaw his department putting out the blaze. “When I got here, we had a fully engulfed structure with exposures on the west and east side. We were able to contain it.”
Power lines were impacted because of the structure fire. The San Joaquin County Sheriff ’s Department called for PG&E to ensure that the lines would not touch the road surface.
“We requested additional resources,” said Chief Butler of PG&E.
A dog appeared from the east side of the structure of the fire. The dog looked frightened, but didn’t show any signs of injury.
A woman called the dog’s name out, and asked firefighters if she could come closer toward the dog in hopes of running to her. As she and a male got closer to the dog, the dog ran into the arms of the woman, who picked him up and carried him off to safety.
Butler said that the Woodbridge Fire Special Operations would start its investigation once the fire was contained.
