Antioch: Two Injured in RV Fire in KMART Parking Lot

11

On Wednesday morning around 3:45 am, Contra Costa County firefighters were dispatched to a report of a vehicle fire in the former KMART parking lot on E. 18th Street in the City of Antioch.

According to Steve Hill, CONFIRE spokesperson, a 44-year-old female sustained several burns as a result of the fire while a male patient experienced minor burns.

A medical helicopter was requested and the female patient as airlifted to UC Davis by 4:30 am with second degree burns while the male patient was transported to Kaiser Antioch with minor burns to the face and hand.

Hill said that the cause of the fire was likely candles being used in the RV for warmth. He added this is the second serious fire caused by use of candles in the last few weeks.

“Coincidentally, the month of December historically sees the highest number of candle-caused fires. Heating-related fires are also most common this time of year,” said Hill. “As a result, we urge all citizens to avoid use of live candles and instead utilize the wide variety of electronic candles as a much safer alternative.”

According to the National Weather Service, the temperature in Antioch Wednesday morning was 42-degrees around the time of the fire.

Hill offered the following advice:

  1. use smoke AND carbon monoxide alarms in their homes, especially every sleeping room;
  2. inspect and test each monthly;
  3. have a family evacuation plan and practice it; and
  4. sleep with EVERY bedroom door closed.

No further information was provided on the condition of the patients.

    • Homeless maybe?

      I’m just saying that because I can’t think of a soul who is envisioning themselves camping in the parking lot of an abandoned K-Mart, keeping themselves warm with candles.

  4. I am the person whos girlfriend accidently had something get to close to the heat source we had in 40 degree weather. We normally wouldn’t go to sleep with a fire going.when she screamed i awoke in the front with the van fully engulfed as she had flames already all around her she panicked trying to put out the fire that had e reached her clothing.luckily she had three jackets on she screamed she was stuck i barely got her out pulling her on her hand of wich her skin came off. She was flown to uc davis and its been two weeks but shes alive
    The fire was so intense everything we had there was gone. I personally want to thank all the people who helped her. I wish there was a shelter or a place out of the bitter cold. To many nights where its so cold. Im not proud to receive a helping hand when given but i personally dont ask for help. I cleaned up the fires aftermath and. Paid for the dump fee of 95.00. And even went back to help clean up orher messes that had been left. Most of the debris is not from the homeless though. They dont have 15 five gallons of paint dropped off or dressers with desk and old waterbeds. Yea theres a few shopping carts with clothes that they found But had to get rid of cause thwy got wet and haven’t the resources the wash them. We did at the only shelter in town that got closed down. Bad call on that one antioch. Im really trying to do what i can even though i have my own disabilities. There is not one anser for everybody. But if you get in situation where youve become homeless there is people and organisations that can help. Maybe even you. Live,love life,and enjoy. Why not. Respect yourself,and others. Also read mother theresas “anyways” poem then pray. Thank you. Sincerly Harry bouchard jr
