At 07:04 a.m. on April 12, the Fremont Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a structure fire at 43106 Continental Drive. The first arriving engine advised of heavy smoke and fire showing from a single family residence. The fire was also extending to the homes on either side of the involved structure and a second alarm was requested to assist. Fremont Fire Department deployed 29 personnel and nine equipment units to the scene.
At the time of the fire, the home was occupied by two adults, five children and four dogs. The family was alerted by neighbors and was able to evacuate on their own without injuries, but one dog was unaccounted for. The home was completely destroyed and homes on either side sustained damage. The cause is undetermined and under investigation.
