Family Escapes Fire, 10 Year Old Girl Jumps From Roof

On Sunday night, the Turlock Fire Department responded to a 911 call reporting a fire in the 200 block of Vermont Avenue. Turlock firefighters arrived to visible smoke and flames coming from a second story bedroom window.

All 6 occupants escaped prior to arrival including a 10 year old girl who escaped by crawling out a second story window onto the roof and jumping into her stepfather’s arms on the ground below.

After arriving, Fire crews initiated an aggressive search and fire attack. A puppy was rescued from the inside of the residence by the first in fire crew.

The fire was controlled within 20 minutes of arrival and crews spent several hours checking for extension in the attic and roof.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. The fire caused heavy damage to the upstairs of the residence. The family will most likely have to call in builders or the likes of Roof repair by 99Roofers to repair any damage to the structure. The estimated dollar loss for the structure and contents is $50,000.

Two children ages 8 and 10 were treated on scene for smoke inhalation and transported by ambulance to Emanuel Medical Center and released. The residence was uninhabitable and Red Cross provided assistance.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
