RWB Fire douses small deck fire in Breckenridge


BRECKENRIDGE – Red, White & Blue Fire officials are trying to determine the cause of a small fire on a deck at the Ski and Racquet Condominiums south of Breckenridge Monday morning.According to fire protection engineer Jay Nelson, a woman driving into town from Blue River reported the fire when she saw a flash of light and noticed small flames on the back deck of the southernmost of the three buildings there.Firefighters arrived to find a small fire on the back deck of the unit, which they extinguished within 10 minutes. The fire left scorch marks on the concrete pad.Nelson said the material burning was likely wood. Fire investigators have not been able to contact the people in the unit to question them about the fire. Investigators have not ruled out arson or accident as the cause of the fire.Nelson did note that if the fire had been closer to the wood-sided building, it could have spread to other units.
