BRAWLEY – A house fire broke out early Sunday evening on the 500 block of West Magnolia in Brawley with several fire engines called.
The firemen battled the flames for many hours under the intense conditions of high heat and humidity.
Immediate neighbors were evacuated, while other neighbors watched nervously as tons of water was funneled into the gaping holes of the burnt out roof trying to douse the remaining fire.
Neighbor Amy Daily commented, “This is a great neighborhood. We’ve had a fire here before and everyone pitches in to help.”
The official report from the Brawley Fire Department is still being written and the actual cause is under investigation.
