11 dumpsters set on fire in Anaheim and Fullerton – Orange County Register


Anaheim Fire & Rescue arson investigators were trying to determine who set 11 dumpsters on fire along Orangethorpe Avenue in Anaheim and Fullerton early Wednesday morning, Jan. 25, authorities said.

Anaheim firefighters were called by the Fullerton Fire Department to the 2300 block of Orangethorpe shortly after midnight, Anaheim police Sgt. Jon McClintock said.

Fullerton firefighters had responded to two dumpsters on fire, then called Anaheim after noticing dumpsters on the other side of the cities’ border were also ablaze, McClintock said.

In all, Anaheim firefighters put out nine dumpster fires with assistance from Fullerton firefighters, McClintock said. Fullerton firefighters extinguished another two.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to extinguish all of the blazes, Anaheim Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief Brent Faulkner told OnSceneTV.

“The response prevented the fire from growing and spreading to the nearby structures,” McClintock said.
