Firetrucks on the Scene at a Two-Alarm Structure Fire

Structure fire reported on Big Bend Drive in Pacifica.

Update 3:05 p.m.

North County Fire Authority firefighters were dispatched to a two-story single family home on Big Bend Drive in Pacifica Thursday at 12:58 p.m. Using hose lines, firefighters gained access to the home and extinguished the fire.

One female occupant was home at the time and made it out safely. There were no firefighters injured.

Currently, two fire investigators are on the scene determining the cause of the blaze, which fire crews say came from the rear side of the home where there was lots of smoke and flames.

There is extensive damage to the first and second floors of the home "but not a total loss," said Matt Lucett, Community Emergency Planning & Disaster Preparedness Chief for the North County Fire Authority.

The three residents of the home are displaced but were able to find alternate living arrangements.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Prevention Bureau.
