Woodland Firefighters were dispatched to a reported structure fire at 1459 Garfield Ct, near Hwy 113 in Woodland.  Upon arrival  firefighters found a well involved fire on the second story of the vacant home. Upon entering the house firefighters were met with heavy fire conditions which required a second alarm bringing firefighters from from Willow Oak, The City of Davis as well as UC Davis Fire Departments to the fire to assist with extinguishment and overhaul.  Firefighters from West Sacramento, Yocha De He, as well as off duty Woodland Fire personnel were summonsed to provide coverage in the City and responded to multiple calls for service, during the fire. 

The fire caused an estimated $100,000 in damage and is currently under investigation. The house was vacant and currently sale pending. Two firefighters suffered minor burn injures while engaged in fire suppression.
