Firefighters extinguish blaze in west Greeley outbuilding
October 8, 2016
Greeley and Windsor Severance Fire Rescue firefighters extinguished a blaze Friday night in west Greeley that damaged an outbuilding.
Firefighters were called just before 6:45 p.m. to a shed on a farm at 1261 95th Ave. The location is in the Windsor fire district, but a Greeley Fire Department fire truck was the first on scene. When firefighters arrived, they saw the building engulfed in fire and smoke, said Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Todd Vess. He said Greeley firefighters quickly got the blaze under control. Windsor units continued to the scene and helped extinguish hot spots. All told, Vess said, five fire trucks and 16 firefighters responded to the blaze, along with a medical unit.
There were no injuries. The building, which appeared to store go-karts, was not occupied at the time of the fire. Vess said because of a roof collapse in the structure, and a lack of light, fire investigators won't begin their work until Saturday morning, though there was nothing suspicious about the blaze.
No estimate of the damages was immediately available, Vess said.
