Chester Circle Fire
Updated On: Mar 21, 2018

Just before 9 p.m. on Sunday, Local 2164 members responded to a house fire at 1873 South Chester Circle. First arriving crews encountered dangerous electrical arcing from a transformer and overhead power lines connected to the house. Firefighters were unable to safely operate under the lines until Xcel could de-energize them, so access was made through the backyard fence to fight the fire. Northbound Parker Road was closed at Jewell Avenue due to fire vehicles and hose lines in the lanes of traffic. An electrical box inside the attached garage caught fire, spread into the attic space and began extending into the home. Firefighters were able to stop the spread of fire and minimize damage, cautiously working around the electrical problems until power could be shut off. The occupants safely evacuated without injuries but were displaced for the night. The American Red Cross assisted them with immediate food and housing needs.
