JeffCo Structure Fire
At 19:44 on October 30th, 2018 Littleton Fire Rescue Engine 13 and Engine 19 were dispatched to a fire alarm activation at 8160 W. Coal Mine Ave. in Jefferson County. The large, newly constructed building is currently unoccupied and there were no visible signs of smoke or fire when Engine 13 arrived. After investigating the interior heavy black smoke was found in a unit on the 2nd floor and full 1st Alarm structure fire response was called. Engine 19 laid in from the hydrant to Engine 13 while the crew from Engine and Medic 13 advanced a 1.75” line inside and confirmed the building’s fire sprinkler system activated and controlled the fire. All searches were clear of anyone inside, no injuries occurred, and the fire did not extend. Firefighters worked from inside and outside to extinguish all the remaining hotspots and cleared the scene a short time later. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
