Prison firefighters help Folsom battle flames

Folsom State Prison (FSP) Fire Department recently helped put out a fire in the city of Folsom. The prompt response and assistance from FSP played a crucial role in containing and extinguishing the fire.

The fire broke out near Prairie City Road, quickly spreading to Iron Point Road. The flames posed a threat to a solar complex adjacent to Intel’s campus. More than 50 firefighters, including FSP fire engine 5310, a fire captain, and five incarcerated firefighters responded.

The fire crews contained the fire within an hour and a half and completely extinguished it within another six hours. Thanks to the collaborative resources and swift action taken, no structures were lost during this incident.

This fire served as valuable training for our firefighters and showcased the resources and capabilities we possess within our community. The assistance provided by FSP demonstrates the commitment and dedication of our team.

The collaborative effort exhibited by everyone involved is a testament to the community strength and shared commitment to public safety.
