Vegetation fire contained in Lakeport Wednesday evening

LAKEPORT – Firefighters quickly contained a small vegetation fire in Lakeport Wednesday evening.


Lakeport Fire Protection District personnel responded to the fire at approximately 6:41 p.m. Wednesday, according to a report from firefighter/paramedic Brian Hajik.


Hajik said the fire was located near the intersection of Larrecou Lane and Konocti Avenue.


Lakeport Fire's engine 5021 arrived in under four minutes and reported the fire as under a quarter acre in light flashy fuels, he said. Lakeport medic engine 5012 arrived 1 minute later and assumed command of the incident.


Under the direction of Captain Rick Bergem, hose lines were quickly extended on both flanks before flames threatened structures, Hajik said.


He said aggressive firefighting operations led to fire containment in five minutes. Mopup lasted just over an hour, and the incident was terminated at 7:47 p.m.


In all, Lakeport Fire Protection District responded with three engines, and Kelseyville Fire provided one ambulance with mutual aid, according to Hajik.


The fire occurred at the future site of the Lakeport Fire Protection District station. Hajik said that construction has not yet begun.


Fire cause is currently under investigation and no injuries were reported, Hajik said.
