YUCAIPA: Crash causes 2 fires

YUCAIPA: Crash causes 2 fires


A crash caused two fires in Yucaipa and the driver was hospitalized with minor burns to his hands, a fire official said.

The driver hit a power box about 6:49 a.m. Friday, March 27, on Fremont Street at Grandview Drive and continued driving north, said San Bernardino County fire Captain Liz Brown.

The damage to the power box caused electricity to arch and bring down a power line igniting nearby brush, the captain said.

Moments later, fire dispatch received a second call about a vehicle fire less than a mile north on Fremont at Date Avenue. When firefighters arrived they found a vehicle engulfed in flames, Brown said.

The driver was on the scene and paramedics transported him to Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of the burns and firefighters quickly extinguished both blazes, she said.

The cause of the crash and the vehicle fire were under investigation, Brown said.
