Hi guys,

A bit late asking the question, but I read that this 'only' remained at a 3rd Alarm. Is the rundown different in San Diego for alarms compared to other cities? I assumed an incident of this size would warrant a few more alarms.

Incidentally, stopped by San Diego last year on the way to Phoenix, took the river tour and all of the naval yards. Found it to be a beautiful city and the two SDFD stations we stopped by for photos were great guys.
It probably remained a 3rd for San Diego Fire Department but that likely didn't include the large Federal Fire response from the Navy and other military facilities in the area.

National City, Coronado, and Chula Vista were also on the scene.
Federal FD had 10 engines and 2 ladders available to use (2 additional engines are on San Clemente Island)
San Diego was simultaneously working a major MVA response and a 1st alarm brush fire
