At Approximately 15:30 on January 8th, 2019 El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center dispatched Ellicott Fire Protection District and Tri-County Volunteer Fire Department responded to 1920 Doe Trail in Ellicott for a possible structure fire. As soon as Ellicott units left the station, they reported a large header of thick black smoke and requested a full structure fire assignment and additional tenders to respond for shuttling water. Peyton Fire Protection District, Calhan Fire Protection District, Falcon Fire Protection District, and Hanover Fire Department with Schriever (AFB) Fire & Emergency Services were then dispatched to assist unit en route. On scene, Chief 3300 established Doe Trail Command and advised all units the main residence and the outbuilding next to the main residence were fully involved and that fire was starting to spread to the grass around the outbuilding, threatening a nearby propane tank. While crews continued to battle the blaze, Command requested additional resources from Colorado Springs Fire Department to respond and the air trailer from Wescott Fire Protection District were dispatched to the scene. Command reported several explosions, which were thought be be smaller propane canisters exploding. The main body of fire was extinguished while crews continued to search for hot spots. The fire was officially called under control around 18:45 and crews began to be released around 19:00. The scene was later handed to Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office for the investigation. Edison Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched but was unable to respond.
