January 21 — Two House Fires in Two Consecutive Years

Rescue 1 outside of Station 2

Rescue 1 outside of Station 2

It’s a strange coincidence, I’m sure, but a quick search on Orange Live (it took 2 seconds) and I discovered that yesterday’s house fire at 4 p.m. on Sunset Drive fell on the same date as a much worse fire that occurred at 1 a.m. on Hawthorne Lane.on Jan. 21, 2013.

The fire on Sunset started in, and was contained to the kitchen area. Firefighters were able to extinguish it quickly, within 15-20 minutes of arrival, and no one was hurt.

The Hawthorne Lane fire likely began in a wood-fired boiler. The firefight went on for more than an hour.

The family fled to safety before firefighters arrived and no one was hurt, but the family did lose everything.

I certainly hope that these two 1-21 house fires are the end of the line for incidents on this date. No matter how minor the damage, house fires are terrifying and leave a long, lasting impression on the homeowners (and firefighters).
