2 People Found Dead in Residential Fire | F.E. Moran Fire Protection

San Bernardino, CA -- Two bodies were found after firefighters successfully extinguished a residential fire early Monday morning.  Twenty-nine firefighters reported to the fire and it took about 30 minutes to extinguish.

The fire grew to 2 alarms and fully engulfed the home.  The fire did not threaten the surrounding structures. 

Once the flames were knocked down, firefighters conducted a search and found two bodies in the bedroom.  Investigators are still trying to determine the ages, genders, and identities.

"The wind did aid the fire in moving into the house," said San Bernadino County Fire Department Battalion Chief Doug Nelson.

Because of the aggresive attack used by the fire crew, firefighters were able to contain the flames to the garage, patio, and a few parts of the home.  "With the attack that the crews initiated first on scene, they were able to save most of the structure, the living quarters.  We were able to save most of the home on the front side," Nelson continued.
