The Grand Junction Police and Fire Departments are investigating a possible arson at 2576 Patterson Rd.  At this point in the investigation we believe a woman intentionally set her own home on fire.

We have confirmed that one dog and one cat perished in the fire and investigators and fire crews are still working to account several other pets.

The home sustained significant damage, and Patterson Road is closed between Meander Dr. and 25 1/2 Rd. for the safety of the emergency crews working this fire and the investigation.

We will send out an update when we have more information.

All fire investigation questions will be directed to the Grand Junction Fire Marshal’s Office and all law enforcement questions regarding this fire will be directed to Kate Porras at the Grand Junction Police Department.
