On November 22, 2017 at approximately 8:05 p.m., the Escondido Police and Fire Communication Center received a report of a fire in an apartment located at 1060 E Washington Ave. A structure fire response was dispatched to the location. The first arriving engine reported a large amount of smoke coming from a second floor unit of a two-story building. Due to the potential for the fire to spread and the threat to life and property, a 2nd alarm response was requested and dispatched.

Aggressive action by the firefighters contained and controlled the fire in approximately 20 minutes. The apartment sustained major damage to the upstairs bedroom with minor to moderate smoke damage throughout the dwelling. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. In all 9 fire engines, 3 trucks, 2 rescue ambulances and 3 Battalion Chiefs responded to the fire.

Escondido Police Units provided road closures. A gift card from California Fire Foundation was provided for immediate emergency aid to the family.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
