From the desk of the City Manager: 


This past weekend, Monrovia firefighters were dispatched with other local fire response professionals to 
assist with addressing a fast-moving brush fire in Santa Maria. The fire, which has been dubbed the Alamo 
Fire, has grown to around 24,000 acres as of this evening, and Cal Fire reports that the fire is 15% contained. 
One structure has already been destroyed, and 133 other structures are threatened. 
From Monrovia, Captain Morton, Engineer Buccola, and Firefighter/Paramedics Jansen and Edgely were 
dispatched. Our four staff members are joining over 1,660 other firefighters working together to battle the 
blaze. As information about this situation develops, we will also be sure to keep everyone updated, and 
given the size and travel distance of the blaze, our team from Monrovia will likely be gone for around a 
week or more. 


During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 423 service events, resulting in 80investigations. To see a complete listing of crimes reported, go to

This past week, Monrovia firefighters played host to three members of the Nigerian Fire Service. The 
group traveled to Monrovia to witness live demonstrations of our two propane (LPG) burn rooms in the 
Fire Training Tower. After the tour, the representatives from Nigeria continued their journey to the visit 
the burn room manufacturer in Corona, CA. It appears that Nigeria is trying to improve fire service training 
and is looking to install facilities similar to the one we have in Monrovia at their fire academies.
The team that visited us from Nigeria included Controller (Fire Chief) Anebi Joseph G., who reports directly 
to the President of Nigeria. In addition, Director of Academies Callistus Kanny, and fire training 
facility contractor Kenny Oguintoybi, were also part of the delegation. Everyone was very appreciative of 
the hospitality shown by the Monrovia Fire Department, and they could not seem to take enough pictures 
and video of the training tower, burn props, fire station and fire engines!
