The Grand Junction Fire Department responded to a garage fire on the 200 block of Chipeta Ave. 2 Trucks, 2 Engines, 1 Support, 1 Battalion Chief en route. First unit on scene (within 5 minutes) reports a fully engulfed, detached garage fire with several power lines down due to direct impingement of flames. (Xcel en route to assist). Fire crews had a challenging time working to get the garage under control due to the amount of fire load and flammables stored inside the garage. Fire was extinguished and the contents of the garage are a “complete loss” per fire investigators. No injuries to our citizens or firefighters to report. The fire was contained to the detached garage and no other structures were involved. Fire investigators have released the scene back to the home owner and any further questions regarding the investigation can be directed towards GJPD investigations. Twitter: @GJFDPIO.
