On January 24th, 2013, Falcon Fire Department responded to a structure fire at the Big R Store in Falcon, Colorado. On arrival it was discovered that one of the buildings that houses stockpiles of hay had caught fire. The wind was able to drive some of the fire into the surrounding field, which also caught fire. Some homes needed to be evacuated initially, due to their close proximity to the grass fire. Mutual aid was brought in from Peyton, Black Forest, and Ellicott Fire to assist in the blaze. As of 5:30PM today emergency vehicles were still on scene working to extinguish the fire. The main retail store of Big R Falcon was not damaged. Also the feed storage building adjacent to the one destroyed by fire was protected by hard working fire crews on scene. The entire water supply used in fire suppression had to be brought to the scene by Fire Department Tender Trucks.
