Overnight Structure Fire in Edgewater Confined to Basement

Members of the Edgewater Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 5700 block of Vermillion Street in Edgewater overnight.

“When we arrived, it was determined the fire originated in the basement. Thanks to the quick and coordinated efforts of the firefighters, they were able to confine the fire to the basement and save the structure,” says Columbia Valley Rural Fire and Rescue Duty Chief Joss Advocaat. 

Eight firefighters from Edgewater responded to the scene and were joined by five firefighters and an Engine from Radium and four firefighters and an engine from the Windermere Fire Department. Emergency Social Services was activated and provided the homeowner with accommodations and there were no injuries as a result of the fire.

“The crews from all three departments did an excellent job working together on this call, and ensuring the fire didn’t spread,” adds Advocaat. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
