A bee’s nest created a bigger challenge as firefighters faced a residential fire Thursday afternoon, according to the Fresno Fire Department.
Fresno fire says they, along with Fresno County Fire, responded to a fire on south Thorne and east California avenues just after 2:30 p.m. The home on fire was boarded up and had smoke emitting from all corners.
As firefighters began removing the boards, they say a hoarding situation took place in the homes, which made it unsafe for them to tackle the flames from the inside. Hoarding is a dangerous fire hazard as it can prevent people from moving through the homes during emergencies, creates a bigger, hotter fire load, and makes it harder for crews to locate victims.
