At approximately 3:30pm this afternoon, Clovis Firefighters responded to reports of a large fuel spill. E42 arrived and requested Clovis Public Works Department to assist in the clean up of what was determined to be a diesel spill in the roadway of a residential neighborhood. The purpose of this post is to highlight the great working relationship we have with our partners here in the City of Clovis. We may work for different departments within the city, but we are all here for the same reason. Thank you to our Public Works Department for the assistance today and for the work you do for our city.
OES Strike Team 5803A spent the day half of their shift mopping up and putting in a check line on their assigned division of the Lake Fire. BC41 from Clovis has been assigned the Strike Team Leader for 5803A along with our OES engine, an engine from Fresno City, Los Banos, Selma and Tulare County Fire.
Last night Clovis Firefighters were sent as part of an OES Type 1 Strike Team to the Lake Fire burning in the Lake Hughes area in Southern Ca. The fire burned 10,000 acres in just 3 hours yesterday and continued to burn actively throughout the night. This is the 7th major wildland incident that Clovis Fire has deployed personnel to so far this season.
Clovis Firefighters are currently on scene of a residential fire in the area of Gettysburg and Sunnyside in South Clovis. BC41 reports smoke coming from the rear of the structure with E42 taking fire attack. Please avoid the area.
