Newport Beach firefighters responded to 492 medical and first aid calls, reunited 164 lost people and performed 90 rescues throughout the Fourth of July holiday weekend, firefighters said.
Many of the calls for assistance were on the Balboa Peninsula, with 40 calls there on the Fourth of July alone, said spokeswoman Jennifer Schulz.
Firefighters also responded to three house fires that day.
Two of them, on Balboa Boulevard and Irvine Avenue, were caused by food left too long on stoves, Schulz said in a news release.
The third was a Dumpster fire on Back Bay Drive.
No one was injured in the fires, and there was no significant damage reported, according to Schulz.
About 425,000 people visited Newport's beaches between Friday and Monday, fire officials estimated, with Monday being the busiest day in response calls across the board.
The number of lost people reunited Monday — 87 — was more than double that of the weekend's second busiest day, with 41 reunions Sunday.
