At about 1:50 pm this afternoon, the Turlock Fire Department was dispatched to a reported dumpster fire at the newly constructed Jessica’s House located at 1225 West Christofferson Parkway.
When crews arrived on scene, they located a fully involved dumpster. Crews were able to quickly bring the fire under control and extinguish it, preventing spread to nearby structures and vehicles.
The Turlock Fire Department has seen an increase in dumpster and miscellaneous item fires in the north end the past few days. It is currently unknown if any of them are related.
