Samaritan House warehouse burns

samaritanfireMembers of the Colorado City Volunteer Fire Department were called out about 3:30 a.m. Monday morning to a structure fire on Westpoint Avenue. Unfortunately, the structure turned out to be the warehouse behind the Samaritan House.
The cause of the fire is unknown, but the State Fire Marshal’s office was bringing in an investigator Tuesday.
Fire Chief Rick Goodney said that firemen did a really good job of keeping the fire contained to the warehouse. There was concern for the Samaritan House building, due to the close proximity to the flames.
The department’s ladder truck was used to cut a hole in the roof of the warehouse, allowing firefighters to battle the blaze without increasing their risk. “The roof was really unsafe at that point,” Goodney said, adding that the ladder truck helped keep firemen safe while they performed their duties.
Firemen battled the blaze for about five hours before extinguishing it completely. The warehouse and its contents were a total loss.
Goodney said the fire burned quickly due to the large amount of fuel, like papers and mattresses, in the warehouse.
