Narrative: On the above date and time, Ventura City Fire Units were dispatched to a reported structure fire. The first arriving engine company found a single story residential unit with smoke coming from the front of the building. Firefighters forced entry into the residence via the front door where they encountered heavy smoke throughout the entire structure. A rapid search for occupants revealed an adult female lying on a bedroom floor. Firefighters removed the women form the building and transferred her to firefighter paramedics waiting outside for further medical assessment. Firefighters found the source of the fire to be material burning outside of a fireplace. The fire was extinguished and smoke removed from the structure. Firefighters overhauled the area where the fire was located ensuring that no fire had spread to the surrounding structure.

After medical assessment, the occupant that was removed from the smoke filled structure refused any further medical treatment or transport to the hospital. No Firefighters were injured as a result of this incident. Fire investigation is ongoing at this time.
