On September 18th, 2022 at 08:54 West Metro Fire Rescue with Arvada Fire Protection District responded to a structure fire in the 1500 block of Whippoorwill Dr. in Lakewood. Engine 2 arrived to a single-story single-family residential with a working fire from the garage and pulled 1 3/4 for fire attack with Medic 5. Engine 5 secured the water supply, Tower 2 started the primary search and Engine 6 pulled a second line of Engine 2 for fire attack. District 1 arrived and assumed command in the offensive strategy. Crews were able to get the fire under control and started overhaul. The fire started in the garage, most likely caused by smoking materials. The family and their two dogs were home at the time they escaped with no injuries. There was heavy fire damage in the garage and some smoke damage throughout the home. Crews contained the fire to the garage and the spread was also limited by a closed door, leading from the garage inside. Additional information provided by West Metro Fire Rescue.
