San Diego Fire-Rescue


Pursuant to my rights as set forth in the California Public Records Act, Government Code Section 6250 et seq., I ask to inspect, receive and or copy the following documents:

  • The number and locations of house/residence fires in San Diego for the following time periods
    • January 2014 to December 2014
    • January 2015 to December 2015
    • January 2016 to December 2016
  • The cause determined for the house/residence fires in San Diego in the above time periods (please include fires that no cause was determined)


Please comply with Section 6253.1 of the Government Code and assist us with this records request.

Any responsive records that are withheld from inspection should be specifically and separately identified in writing, and accompanied by the claimed justification for withholding as provided by California Government Code Section 6255, stating the nature of the document withheld and the basis for such withholding. If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure, please redact the information in question for the time being and make the rest available as requested.

The law requires you to provide suggestions for overcoming any practical basis for denying access to records that are sought. You are required to search your records and make reasonable efforts to seek clarifying information from us if it is necessary to help identify the records requested. I ask for a written response to this request within the time mandated by the Act. The documents should include any relevant documents created up to and including the date of your response to this request.

If certain parts of this request are ready to be copied and/or inspected before other parts, I request the portions that are ready are made available first.

In accordance with Section 6253(c) of the California Government Code, please respond to the request within ten (10) days.

If you are not the proper person to handle this request, please forward to the appropriate person and copy me on that communication.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention and timely cooperation with this request.
