Trenton Way Multi Family Structure Fire
Posted On: Dec 31, 2018

At 8:08 p.m. on Sunday December 30th, Local members responded to numerous 911 reports of an apartment building on fire at 2172 S. Trenton Way in Arapahoe County. While en-route, Battalion Chief 5 observed heavy flames and requested a 2nd Alarm, nearly doubling the amount of members and equipment. First arriving Engine 21, Medic 21 and Medic 211 found flames shooting from the 3rd floor and extending into the attic space. Those crews began an aggressive fire attack and searched the apartment units for potential occupants, they determined that everyone had safely evacuated. As additional crews arrived they joined in the difficult fight to save property from the well-involved attic fire. Approximately 1 hour into the incident, with the building falling apart around the members, they transitioned to a “defensive strategy” and battled the fire from the exterior.

It took 3 hours to bring the incident under control and thankfully no one was injured. Members contained the fire to one half of the 24-unit building with 12 apartments sustaining damage. The fire displaced 48 people and the American Red Cross is assisting them. Members will remain on scene extinguishing hotspots through the night while investigators work to determine the cause.

Thanks to Local 858 and 1290 for responding to assist.
