Firefighters end blaze in communications center

By The Bakersfield Californian

Kern County Fire Department crews knocked down a developing fire inside a Bright House Networks communication center in Lamont at around 8 a.m. Saturday morning.

The blaze reportedly resulted in a loss of service to some of the company's clients.

Firefighters responding to the blaze found light smoke and a smoldering fire in the attic of the building, according to incident reports.

The efforts of firefighters, and an automatic fire-suppression system that used inert gas, combined to protect the communications equipment in the building, the report stated.


Brighthouse workers were dispatched to restore service to the company's customers. Daily Deal!
