Lompoc Firefighters Battle Multiple Rubbish Fires Early Monday

A series of rubbish fires in Lompoc kept firefighters busy early Monday morning, Battalion Chief Brian Federmann said.

Beginning at 4:30 a.m., personnel from the Lompoc Fire Department responded to the first incident in the 200 block of the alley between North K and L streets.

Additional fires were located in located in the: 900 block of West Maple, 1100 block of West Pine, 1400 block of West Oak, and the 200 block of North X. 

Many of the fires extended to nearby fences, and in one case, damaged a vehicle, Federmann said. 

Firefighters extinguished all of the fires before they spread to adjacent structures, he added.

Crews spent about 90 minutes responding to the blazes, Federmann said. 

The cause of the fires are under investigation, and if residents have any information, they can contact the Fire Department at 805.736.4513.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
