At 10:33 on February 3rd, 2013 Wheat Ridge Fire Protection District responded to a commercial structure fire at 2890 Harlan St. in Edgewater with auto-aid from West Metro Fire Rescue & Fairmount Fire Protection District. Crews arrived to a 2-story multi-family dwelling with heavy turbulent smoke showing from the garage of the Alpha side with extension into the 1st and 2nd floors. Engine 71 laid in and stretched a 1 3/4 line in for fire attack in the offensive strategy, and Engine 73 assigned as RIT. Tower 72 split crews into primary search and cut the garage doors to gain access in, and Engine 33 arrived and started fire attack on the Bravo side. With rapidly deteriorating conditions, the incident was transitioned into a defensive strategy with heavy fire and smoke. Command requested a full 2nd alarm response, and Engine 1 arrived and set-up on the Alpha-Bravo side as fire attack. Four 2 1/2 attack lines were in operation with conditions not improving with fire on all floors and the attic space. Tower 3 arrived and went to the roof and preformed vertical ventilation. Crews worked heavy fire with hoarder conditions which made getting to the fire inside difficult, but however crews were still able to extinguish the fire and crews started an extensive overhaul. 20 units were damage with 24 occupants were evacuated. No injuries were reported and the fire cause is under investigation.
