Reem Court Structure Fire Press Release

On November 13, 2012, the El Dorado Hills Fire Department was dispatched to a residential structure fire on Reem Court. The occupant called 911 for smoke detector activation. El Dorado Hills Fire units responded along with assistance from El Dorado County Fire, El Dorado County Sheriff, and the City of Folsom Fire Department. El Dorado Hills Fire was the first to arrive and found the attic to be heavily involved in fire with smoke showing from the eaves. The occupants had evacuated prior to the arrival of fire units. Units were assigned to fire attack, vertical ventilation, and salvage/overhaul of the interior. As crews attempted to pull ceiling and attack the fire, the tile roof collapsed. All crews were then immediately accounted for as fire attack strategy was changed due to safety concerns. The attic fire was eventually extinguished with a majority of personal property successfully salvaged to the non-affected garage areas.
