Fire at 6040 Crestridge Drive SW

October 26, 2020

On Monday, October 26 at 12:39 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 6040 Crestridge Drive SW for the report of a garage fire.  Initial reports indicated that a Yardy caught on fire just outside of the garage.  

Firefighters arrived on scene to find smoke and flames coming from the attached garage, so crews initiated a fast attack by attempting to knock down the fire.    

The fire spread from the Yardy to the garage, and then subsequently went into the eaves and also spread into the attic of the residence.  There was significant fire damage to the garage, and there was significant smoke and water damage to the living area of the home.  

No injuries were reported.  The family has been displaced due to the damage sustained to the dwelling. 

The fire was determined to have originated in the Yardy after ashes from the fireplace had been discarded into the Yardy earlier this morning.  

The Fire Department would like to remind residents to completely cool ashes and discard them into a metal container with a lid.
