At 18:42 on August 14th, 2018 Littleton Fire Rescue and South Metro Fire Rescue responded to a reported house fire at 7095 South Elati St. in Littleton. First arriving Battalion Chief 1 observed light smoke coming from the siding on the front of the home and assumed command. Firefighters confirmed with the residents that everyone had safely evacuated, and no one was injured. Crews searched the interior of the home and determined the fire was confined to the exterior siding. Firefighters used ground ladders to access a small roof to work off of and used hand tools to pry apart the siding and locate the fire. The smoldering area was quickly extinguished with minimal damage to the rest of the home. Heavy thunderstorms with frequent lightning were in the area when the incident occurred.
