Glendale Fire responds to 3 fireworks-related fires in 12 hours

Posted

By Sunday night around 10:30 p.m. on the 4th of July weekend, Glendale firefighters had responded to four fires in less than 12 hours, three of which are believed to be fireworks-related, the department shared Monday morning.

In the 8000 block of West Stella Avenue, a neighbor called 911 at 9:20 p.m. Sunday night when a house in the neighborhood was on fire. Glendale firefighters arrived on scene and found not an active fire but charring to the front of the house on the stucco, investigators say.

Glendale Fire reports that the family states they were firing off fireworks in front of their house, and when they finished, they put the used fireworks in a box on their front patio then went inside. The box caught on fire and burned their front wall by the door.

Firefighters cut into the stucco to make sure the fire hadn’t gotten into the walls. Nothing was found and the house was turned back over to the homeowners.

The Glendale Fire Department urges residents to use caution on the holiday and to follow city laws at all times.
