The Grand Junction Fire Department responded to a report of a structure fire at 2064 Pannier Ct. 6 units responding. Engine 5 (on scene within 4 minutes of the dispatch time) reports heavy smoke coming from the garage of a single story home. Engine 5 utilized a transitional attack holding the fire from spreading. Once other units arrived, fire crews were able to make entry into the structure and complete a full extinguishment of the fire. Fire damage was sustained to only the garage. Heavy to moderate smoke damage was noted throughout the house. We do not have a cost estimate in damage as of yet and investigators are on scene conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause. One resident was evaluated and treated on scene for minor injuries, no transport. Red Cross was called to assist in the placement of four citizens due to the amount of smoke damage in the house.
