Firefighters knock down fire at Las Primaveras Resort & Spa in Desert Hot Springs

Firefighters were able to quickly knock down a fire at the Las Primaveras Resort and Spa in Desert Hot Springs Monday evening.

The fire occurred in the area of Ocotillo Road and 6th Street at around 5:15 p.m.

According to Cal Fire, firefighters arrived and found a one-story abandoned apartment building with multiple units on fire.

“There were no occupants found in the building," said Cal Fire Chief Don Camp.

Cal Fire confirmed that a total of five units were involved.

Gas Company requested to the scene.

The fire has been knocked down at around 6 p.m. There were no words on injuries.

Just right around the corner last week, a two-alarm blaze at the abandoned Sahara Resort and Spa.

Crews also quickly contained those flames.

Cal Fire tells us it’s unusual for these both to break out just a week apart.

“It's unusual to have two fires in that close proximity in such a short period of time. So CalFire arson investigators have been brought in and they are taking a look at what caused these fires," Camp explained.

Cal Fire says you can prevent fires at your home by remaining cautious especially as the weather cools down.

“It's that time of the year that we see a lot of folks using space heaters and alternative sources for heating other than gas," Camp said. "Make sure they have an exit plan to get out of the house if there is a fire in the house.”
