A person trapped in their home Friday was rescued by Yuba City Fire Department (YCFD) personnel after what was described as an “aggressive fire attack” on the burning structure, officials with the department said over the weekend. At about 12:50 p.m. on Friday, YCFD responded to “heavy fire” coming from a single-story, single-family home in the 2800 block of Monroe Road in Yuba City that also involved “victims trapped” inside, the department said. “Fire units were greeted by a reporting party who advised that a resident was trapped and screaming for help,” YCFD officials said. “Yuba City Fire personnel immediately engaged in an aggressive fire attack with coordinated rescue efforts to locate and remove the trapped resident. In the performance of these duties, YCFD crews encountered difficult conditions with heavy fire and zero visibility.” The department said a resident was found inside and unconscious with “moderate to major burn injuries.”
