House Fire on Long Beach’s Euclid Avenue Sends Woman to Hospital

A house fire on Euclid Avenue sent one woman to the hospital just past midnight on Monday morning, according to Long Beach Fire Department Officials (LBFD).

According to LBPD spokesman Jake Heflin, firefighters were dispatched at 12:14AM to the 600 block of Euclid Avenue on a call regarding a structure fire. Upon arrival at 12:16AM, they discovered smoke coming from the rear of a single-family home, where they located a fire.

Heflin said the fire was knocked down around 12:23AM, when they noticed more smoke and fire coming from a garage, removed it, and conducted a search to make sure everyone was evacuated from the house. All fires were extinguished by 12:30AM.

One woman who had been inside of the home was transported to a local hospital with injuries due to smoke inhalation, according to Heflin. Her medical condition was not released. 

According to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) spokesperson Marlene Arrona, LBFD personnel also located “what appeared to be a marijuana growth” operation. Narcotics investigators responded, she said. 

Fire investigators are on scene to determine the cause and origin of the fire, Heflin said.

The case is currently under investigation, according to Arrona and Heflin. Anyone with information is asked to call the LBPD Narcotics Investigation Section at 562.570.7221.

This report was updated at 11:42AM with information from the LBPD.
