Monrovia House Fire

On March 22 at approximately 2 a.m. Monrovia firefighters, with the assistance of Arcadia Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire in the 100 block of N. Magnolia. Initial arriving companies found heavy fire and smoke issuing from a rear house and garage. The first-in engine company initiated fire attack, while additional lines were pulled to protect the front house from fire spread. Several rooms of the house and garage were heavily damaged due to fire, heat and smoke. Fortunately the residents escaped unharmed and no firefighter injuries were reported. A preliminary estimate on structure and content loss is $105,000. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
