Palmdale Family Homeless After Firework Sparks Devastating Fire

palmdale fireworks accident

PALMDALE, CA (July 5, 2024)A Palmdale family has been left homeless after a lit firework ignited a fire that destroyed their home on Sunday, June 30. The incident occurred at the Rivas family’s residence on W. Avenue O.

 

The fire began when a firework landed in their backyard and exploded, causing a blaze that blew out a sliding glass door. At the time, Kristina Rivas’ two youngest daughters and her elderly mother were home but managed to escape unharmed.

 

The fire completely destroyed the home, which had been the family’s residence for over 25 years. The house is now uninhabitable and beyond recovery. The Rivas family is currently living in a trailer on their property, relying on food donations from friends and family.

 

Kristina Rivas expressed her frustration and urged the public to reconsider the use of fireworks, especially during the 4th of July, due to the risks they pose. The family has reportedly yet to receive a response from Palmdale city officials or their home insurance company about the Palmdale fireworks accident.
