Fire marshal still investigating Somerton fire

The Fire Department’s first marshal’s office continues to investigate the cause of a fire on the 15100 block of Beverly Drive in Somerton.

One possibility is utility lines.

Firefighters responded to the blaze at around 3:30 p.m. on June 4.

The fire engulfed several homes — displacing at least 20 people — and eventually went to three alarms, meaning at least 50 apparatus and 120 members responded.

Because the temperature was so high, additional members arrived on scene to give the first responders rest.

The fire was placed under control at 5:45 p.m. ••
