Fire Sunday in Jamestown

Firefighters braved the wind and snow to respond to an early morning fire in Jamestown Sunday, Jan. 5, at the Lucky Dog Pub and Grub, located at 107 South Row Street.

According to Jamestown Rural Fire Chief Steve Borts, the firefighters were on the scene about 6:30 a.m. The scene was cleared about two hours later. The structure was saved, although there was heavy smoke damage throughout. Reportedly the fire damage was mostly contained to one area of the structure. It was reportedly an electrical fire.

Jamestown Rural fire Protection District and California City Fire Department responded to the fire with four fire trucks and about 20 firefighters. Mid-Mo Ambulance District was also on the scene to treat an owner for smoke inhalation.

Borts commented that it was a fast response by the firefighters because of the time. "Everyone was up and available to help," he said.

Even so, Borts said the cold, wind and blowing snow made the fire scene a tough one.

"I don't want to have to fight a fire under those conditions again," he said.
