On February 24th units from the San Bernardino City Fire Department responded to a multiple alarm fire located in a downtown motel. Initial arriving units encountered heavy smoke and fire conditions coming from two motel rooms located on the second floor of the 2 story motel. An aggressive interior attack was initiated simultaneously with vertical ventilation.

“We knocked the fire down very quickly and a search of the motel rooms was completed with no one found”. “This was our second working structure fire for the shift… It’s good to be back at station 222!”
