On March 5th, 2013 at 12:38 Poudre Fire Authority responded to a reported garage fire at 2225 W. Stuart St. in Fort Collins, and were informed while responding that the fire was most likely extinguished. In contrast, when Engine 4 arrived they found the attached garage with fire coming from the rear door. The resident who was attempting to extinguish the fire was helped to escape by a home health care employee, a City of Fort Collins Utilities employee and a neighbor. Two of these people were evaluated on scene for minor smoke inhalation by Poudre Valley Hospital Emergency Services, and were not transported. Firefighters were able to quickly control and extinguish the fire that had extended to the garage attic but not the living area of the residence. There was moderate fire damage to the contents in the garage and very light smoke damage to the residence. Fans were used to remove smoke from the living area. PFA Customer Assistance Response Team assisted the occupants with immediate shelter needs. A PFA investigator determined the origin to be in the garage; cause was determined to be accidental. No further information is available. Additional information provided by Poudre Fire Authority
