Forrest Fire


A vacant home in the Oleander neighborhood of Bakersfield was been destroyed by a fast-moving 2 alarm fire while a second house next door sustained major damage. The first house on Forrest and H streets was fully engulfed by flames when firefighters arrived around 5:05 am Tuesday. Bakersfield Fire Battalion Chief Matthew Perry says the homes were vacant when the fires broke out and no one was hurt. Tuesday morning’s incident is being investigated as suspicious.
