Information Release –Structure Fire
On January 6, 2021 at approx. 12:27 a.m. an active structure fire was reported on Packet Court. The notification was received through the 911 system managed by Archuleta County Combined Dispatch center.
Upon arrival, the first due engine completed a scene size up noting a two story, single-family residence with smoke and flame showing from the roof and chimney area. First arriving units established an aggressive interior fire attack, limiting the spread of the fire. Fire was contained to the area surrounding the point of origin.
PFPD responded with two engines, two chief cars, one fire marshal vehicle, eight paid staff members, and three volunteers. Mutual aid from the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Department, Upper Pine Fire Protection District and one PSMC ambulance staged on scene.
PFPD was on scene for approx. 2.5 hours.
The structure was occupied by four adults at the time of the fire. The occupants credit the residence’s smoke detectors in alerting them to the fire early enough for everyone to escape safely.
There are no firefighter or civilian injuries to report. The origin and cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
