Detached Garage Fire
At 16:51 on May 6th, 2022 Grand Junction Fire Department was dispatched for reports of a residential structure fire in the 2700 block of Unaweep Ave. in Orchard Mesa. Engine 4 was first-in and sized up a detached garage in the back with a working fire and several exposures. The fire spread to a nearby house, threatened a second, burned a power pole and lines, and started some ground cover on fire as well. Crews were able to limit damage to the second structure and remained in a defensive strategy with the originating structure. Crews were able to get water on the fire but were challenged by shifting winds and power lines. One person was evaluated and released on scene by the medical group. The fire is under investigation by the Grand Junction Fire Marshal’s Office.
