• Early morning fire at 17th and Sinex

    There were no injuries and no damage to the structure, a garage, as four units and a Chief responded to an early morning fire at the corner of 17th and Sinex in Pacific Grove.

    Per Monterey/Pacific Grove Fire Department: On Friday June 15, at 3:33 a.m., three fire engines, a ladder truck and a Fire Chief were dispatched to a structure fire at 610 Sinex Avenue for a report of a garage on fire.  With a response time of three minutes and eight seconds, a detached garage was witnessed with smoke showing from the doorway.  One engine attacked the fire, another engine established an Initial Rapid Intervention Crew, and the third engine established water supply, the ladder truck was assigned to ventilation.  The Fire Chief arrived on scene and established Sinex Incident Command of the scene.

    The fire was found in the center of the garage.  Crews quickly knocked down the fire and kept it from spreading.  The cause of the fire was determined to have been started by a spark from a saw blade that started the smoldering fire in the sawdust collection bag.  Damage was limited to the saw, the plywood cutting table, and smoke damage to the garage and its contents.
