Three video clips from a neighbor who came running with a green line when he saw a nearby home burning in the 69000 block of Pole Line Avenue in Desert Heights near Twentynine Palms, California (San Bernardino County) on Thursday afternoon. He wasn’t the only one who ran. If you listen to the conversation on clips 2 & 3 below you will hear the videographer and another person discuss that a person who lives in the house ran away. KCDZFM.com has an explanation:
Twentynine Palms firefighters with support from Combat Center Fire responded to a structure fire yesterday near Lear and Pole line in the North Twentynine Palms area of Desert Heights.
Fire Chief Jim Thompson said the single-story residence had one tenant in it when the fire broke out. Arriving firefighters said the tenant was attempting to douse the fire with a garden hose but threw the hose down and ran away as they approached. Responding Sheriff’s Deputies located him a short time later; he was found to a parolee-at-large and placed under arrest.
At least two dogs died in the fire.
