Colorado Springs Fire Department's Ladder Truck 1 on the scene of a fire, inside a home on Chalmers Road, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Fire crews did a quick attack from the interior of the home, to get this fire controlled in a short amount of time. - Three Alarm Productions--Thomas Dickerson
Colorado Springs Fire Department was dispatched to a possible structure fire on Chalmers Road. The incident took place on August 25, 2012. The first company arriving on scene reported smoke coming from the residence. A full first alarm apparatus response was put on this structure fire assignment by dispatch. Engine 8 was assigned to hook up to the nearest hydrant for water supply. The first interior crew was able to get a quick knockdown on this fire and bring it under control. A primary and secondary search by fire crews, inside the home, confirmed that all occupants made it safely to the outside of the residence. No injuries were reported during this incident. According to Public Information Officer, Lt. Jeff Sievers, arson is suspected because of a possible domestic dispute, where gasoline may have been poured on things inside the home. The exact cause of the fire is under investigation by Colorado Springs Fire Department. I spoke with a neighbor, who said he saw smoke coming from the residence, and immediately called 911.
