    Current Situation

    (Recent updates are posted at the top of the Current Situation)

    The City of Riverside Fire Department responded to a report of a residential structure fire in the 11,700 block of Quiet Lane. The first due Engine Company found a single-story single family dwelling with a moderate amount of smoke coming from the front door of the home. The crews were met by one of the occupants who stated there was a fire in the back bedroom. Riverside City Firefighters made entry into the home and found an occupant with a garden hose spraying water on the fire. Due to the amount of smoke in the residence, the occupant was escorted out of the home for his own safety. Riverside Firefighters reentered the home and extinguished the fire in the bedroom. The fire was brought under control in about 10 minutes with the majority of the damage limited to the room that the fire started in, with smoke damage throughout the home. The cause of the fire was a heating blanket that had caught fire next to the bed. There were no civilian or firefighter injuries during the incident. The occupants were able to find alternative lodging.
