At 14:25 on February 13th, 2021 South Metro Fire Rescue responded to several 911 calls reporting at house on fire at 5112 S. Newton St. in Littleton. First arriving Engine 11 and Medic 11 found a large volume of smoke and fire visible from the front and rear of the home. Firefighters advanced an attack hose line to control the flames and conducted a 360 degree walk around. They quickly located one person who was assisted out of the home, treated by paramedics and transported to the hospital. As more units arrived, additional hose lines were used to extinguish flames in the first floor and attic space. Firefighters from Ladder 12 conducted vertical ventilation, a technique used to cut a hole in the roof which acts like chimney and lifts the smoke and heat up and out of the structure. During the primary search, one dog and two cats were rescued from the home. Belleview Avenue was closed for emergency vehicle access and the incident was placed under control at 15:15. Several additional units over the 1st Alarm were requested to due to the frigid temperatures and the need to warm up ice covered firefighters who had been working. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire. Additional information provided by South Metro Fire Rescue
