    Shortly after 8:30 pm on Wednesday evening, the Ventura County Fire Communications Center received multiple reports of a structure fire at the Community Presbyterian Church located on Poli St just above Midtown Ventura. In addition, a monitored fixed alarm system indicated a smoke alarm was activated on the second floor.

    Firefighters arrived on scene to find moderate smoke coming from a second story apartment connected to the main church. The unit was occupied by three occupants who successfully escaped the structure. The fire started on a mattress in a shared living area. The initial fire was knocked down within 8 minutes and the fire was contained to the contents in the room and did not commute to the structure. The fire was contained to a single room in the residence.

    A Ventura City Fire Investigator, with the collaboration of the occupants, identified the source of the fire as an incendiary object left on the bed unattended. Fire crews coordinated a salvage and overhaul operation to the unit, including pressurized ventilation for smoke removal. The residence was returned to the occupants and was able to be inhabited immediately. The Ventura Building and Safety Division was briefed on the incident.

    Fire losses were estimated to not exceed $1,000 in contents and would require only minimal cosmetic alterations to the structure.

    The church was completely removed from the area involved in the fire and all church related activities are anticipated to proceed normally.
