Initial reports of a multi-family residential structure fire proved an electrical fire early this morning on Ukiah’s Henderson Lane.
The Incident Commander reported the lines were still active as of 6:06 a.m. and burning in the walls of what was described as a trailer. He requested the City of Ukiah’s electric personnel shut down the lines.
Scanner traffic beginning around 5:50 a.m. indicated dispatch had received reports of a structure fire in a unit on the 100 block of Henderson Lane.
Ukiah Police officers were able to quickly deploy to the scene and found that all the occupants of the home had evacuated and the fire seemed to be electrical in nature and isolated to the roof/attic area.
The officer at the scene recommended firefighters proceed to ensure the fire did not spread to other units.
UPDATE 6:15 a.m.: The Incident Commander reports the fire has been knocked down. Firefighters will be removing wall paneling to investigate the fire. Electrical personnel is still working to shut off power to the area.
