The CAFD responded to a structure fire Thursday afternoon at 3841 Brookston Road. Upon arrival CAFD units found a single family home with heavy fire venting out the roof and eves. Crews stretched several handlines and the roof collapsed into the structure shortly after crews began to extinguish the fire. The fire was located in a rural area without fire hydrants and the CAFD was assisted in fire suppression by Grand Lake, with additional units from CAFD stations 2 and 5, Culver, Grand Lake, and Industrial fire departments providing water.
Crews were on scene for several hours, and the home was declared a total loss. A resident received minor burns attempting to extinguish the fire prior to our arrival, and was treated and released on the scene.
