Point Dume Garage Fire

A garage fire was reported early Tuesday morning on Birdview Avenue in the Point Dume neighborhood, according to Sgt. Wright of the Malibu/Lost Hills Station. 

The call came in at 6:47 a.m. in the 7300 block of Birdview near Sea Lion Place on the southwest side of Point Dume that overlooks Westward Beach. Firefighters and Sheriff’s officials rushed to the scene and the fire did not appear to spread to any other structures. 

As of 7:45 a.m., the situation appeared under control as white smoke was blowing out toward the Pacific Ocean and emergency responders remained on scene. According to Capt. Ralston at LA Co. Fire Station 71, two vehicles burned in the fire and there was “minor damage to the interior of the house,” but the two people in the home at the time escaped unscathed. 

“The people are all fine,” Ralston said.
