At 23:48 on February 7th, 2019 Loveland Emergency Communications Center (LECC) dispatched Loveland Fire Rescue Authority and Thompson Valley EMS, and requested Front Range Fire Rescue auto-aid to the report of alarms sounding and smoke coming from an apartment in the 5100 block of Ronald Reagan Blvd. in Johnstown. Loveland Battalion 1 added Loveland Rescue 2 to the response. Engine 6 arrived on scene to a large three story multifamily with nothing showing. Engine 6 assumed command and had all responding units stage. Battalion 1 arrived and took command and had Engine 1 park at the hydrant on the Charlie side of the building with access to the FDC and had Front Range ladder 8 take position on the north end of the building to provided aerial access if needed. Crew 6 pulled an alley line to the second-floor landing and didn’t get an answer at the door and forced entry to the apartment.
