Prentice Ave. Commercial Structure Fire
Posted On: Dec 06, 2021

Just after 6:45 a.m. on Monday, December 6, 2021, South Metro received a call for a reported fire at an office unit on E. Prentice Ave. in Greenwood Village. Greenwood Village Police and another 911 caller also reported heavy smoke coming from the scene. When Local members arrived, they found a working fire in the Deer Run Dentistry office with fire extension into the attic space. Crews began stretching a horizontal standpipe in order to reach the office unit from the parking lot where the apparatus was located. Members made entry into the office space to clear the unit and check the other units next door to see if the fire had spread further. With smoke still visible coming from the attic, crews used ladders to gain access to the roof. They utilized hooks and chainsaws to pull roof tiles and the ceiling to expose the interior of the attic to better find where the fire had extended to. Thermal imaging cameras were also used to discover where there was still heat in the structure. Members remained on scene for a while to do overhaul work and to make sure the fire was completely put out. Everyone evacuated safely, but one person was assessed on scene for smoke inhalation. South Metro Fire Investigators are working on determining a cause.
