At 06:29 on November 23rd, 2018 Littleton Fire Rescue Engine 13 was dispatched to an outside smoke investigation in the 6400 block of West Coal Mine Ave. in Jefferson County.  As the crew was donning their PPE, the incident was upgraded to a structure fire.  When Engine 13 made the turn out of their firehouse smoke was seen covering the street with numerous cars pulled over.  Engine 13 conducted a driving 360 at 6350 West Coal Mine and spotted on the hydrant in front of the fire building.  Heavy smoke was pouring from the small 2-story office building with fire visible in the Charlie side windows.  The first 1.75” line was advanced to the Charlie side door where Medic 13 entered for fire control and primary search.  Engine 13 advanced a second 1.75” line through the alpha side and coordinated fire attack and searches with the medic crew.  Battalion Chief 1 assumed command and maintained the offensive strategy. Tower 18 positioned on the Bravo side, set up for aerial operations and gave a roof report.  West Metro Engine 12 laid in from the 6800 block of S. Marshall St. and positioned on the Charlie side.  The fire was quickly controlled and all searches proved negative. The mansard construction compartmentalized heavy smoke and a thorough search for extension was carried out, none was found.  The building was unoccupied when the fire occurred, no injuries were reported, Littleton Fire Investigators and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Investigators are working together on the case.
