Firefighters sent on goose chase

Summit County, CO Colorado
Special to the Daily/Brandon WilliamsFirefighters examine a hot-tub boiler that caught fire Wednesday, sending them on a cross-town search.

Despite being sent initially to the wrong address in Frisco, firefighters were still able to keep a small fire from growing into a big problem on Wednesday.

Crews from Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue, Red, White and Blue Fire Protection District, Summit County Ambulance and Frisco Police were called to 200 Galena St. to check a report of smoke coming from the entryway of a multi-family rental lodge.

Dispatchers learned that the source of the report didn’t actually know the specific address of the burning structure, just that it was on the east side of Frisco.

Within minutes, crews discovered the fire at 200 Seventh Ave., several city blocks away and were able to extinguish the small fire in a hot-tub boiler, limiting the damage.

Firefighters caution people calling 9-1-1 to be certain of the address and to stay on the phone until emergency crews arrive at the correct location.
