Sunday afternoon on Dorado Drive in Bullhead a home burst into flames. Explosion noises were heard. It is unknown if any injures occurred at this time. The cause of the fire is still under investigation and a release is expected Monday.

Update **

On Sunday, October 27, 2019, at approximately 2:55 PM, several crews were dispatched to the 1700 block of Dorado Dr. for the report of a structure fire. The first arriving units reported heavy smoke and winds blowing, forcing the blaze to a near-by secondary exposure.  Acting Battalion Chief Marvin McCabe requested additional units to respond through dispatch. After confirming that all occupants were outside of the structures and accounted for firefighters quickly began attacking the blaze utilizing the deck gun. Incoming crew members were assigned to the secondary structure, attacking the fire that had extended into the neighboring roof and ceiling.

 Unfortunately, the residence where the fire originated was a complete loss.  The neighboring structures’ roofline and ceiling were severely damaged, leaving the home uninhabitable at this time.  One feline was recovered in the secondary structure by Firefighter Joe Jackson during the incident and returned to a very grateful owner. Acting Battalion Chief McCabe advised, one patient was transported from the scene for smoke inhalation. The Red Cross was called to provided assistance to the affected families.

 

Our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) arrived on the scene, providing rehab assistance to crew members as they continued to cycle through the overhaul process. Fire investigators arrived to begin their investigation, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.
