Fillmore Way Multi Family Structure Fire
Posted On: Jul 06, 2021

At 2:57 p.m. on Sunday, July 4, 2021, South Metro Dispatch received multiple 911 calls reporting a townhouse fire at 8192 S. Fillmore Way in Centennial. Responding crew observed a smoke plume from a distance and upon arrival they countered a large volume of fire consuming the back of the building. Members stretched a hose line to the rear where they encountered a free-flowing natural gas line which was fueling the flames. Arapahoe County Sheriff Deputies evacuated residents in the building next door due to intense heat and leaking gas. Members quickly extinguished all visible fire on the exterior and shut the gas off. Meanwhile, additional crews accessed the interior of the burning townhouses through the front doors to search for people inside and extinguish fire that extended into the first floor, second floor and attic space. Vertical ventilation was conducted on the roof to lift hot smoke and gasses inside the structure. The incident was placed under control within 30 minutes, but crews remained on scene for a few hours extinguishing hot spots and venting smoke. 1 adult was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation, 2 other adults were evaluated on scene by paramedics but did not want to go to the hospital. Initial 911 callers reported that a barbecue grill fire spread to the building and there were no immediate indications that fireworks were involved. The SMFR Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating what caused the fire.
