Firefighter Bitten as 2 Dogs Rescued from Burning Home in Lompoc

Two dogs were rescued from a burning home in Lompoc on Monday, although one firefighter received a minor injury due to a dog bite, according to the Lompoc Fire Department.

At approximately 3:45 p.m., personnel from the Lompoc, Santa Barbara County and Vandenberg Air Force Base fire departments responded to 1105 N. Jasmine St., said fire Battalion Chief Brian Federmann.

The first crew to arrive reported smoke coming from the single-family home so firefighters entered to battle the blaze and search for occupants.

Two dogs were rescued from the home and the fire was extinguished within 10 minutes.

“Upon investigation, it was determined that the fire started in the kitchen with the stovetop as the heat source,” Federmann said. 

One firefighter received a minor injury from a dog bite on the hand, Federmann said. 

Two adults and two children were displaced from the home due to the fire damage in the kitchen,  Federmann added.

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.

Thanks for asking!
