At 12:17 AM Grand Junction Fire Department responded to reports of a home on fire on the 200 block of Nancy Street. A family awoke to smoke in their home and immediately called 911. Two adults and four children were able to safely evacuate the home before crews arrived. When crews arrived on scene, they found heavy smoke coming from the attic of the home and were able to extinguish the fire, limiting damage to the home and personal possessions. No injuries were reported from the incident, but the family is temporarily displaced. The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.

GJFD responded with a Battalion Chief, Truck 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Engine 4, Ambulance 4, and Ambulance 12. Mesa County Sheriff’s Office also responded to assist with scene safety. Red Cross will be providing aid to the six people displaced from the fire.
