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.
