Residents Respond to House Fires
Hot weather combined with oil-soaked rags resulted in two SouthPark homes being engulfed in flames on June 8, with a third home also affected by falling embers. No people or animals were hurt in the blaze, but two firefighters were treated at a hospital for heat exhaustion and were later released.
The fire started after a homeowner on S. Bemis Circle had left stain-soaked rags in his shed. The temperature reached well into the 90’s that day, causing a spontaneous combustion of the rags. The flames quickly spread to the side of the resident’s home, and then to the adjacent home, aided by a “free flowing” natural gas line. By the time firefighters arrived and extinguished the fire, both homes were severely damaged and were later deemed total losses.
Embers from the fire drifted to another home several lots away on S. Bemis Street, setting their shake shingle roof ablaze. Firefighters were able to contain that fire quickly, minimizing the damage.
SouthPark resident Steve Haskell fought the third fire using the homeowner’s garden hose. A local news helicopter filmed Steve as he stood on their shed spraying water on the flames.
Jeff Bafford, another SouthPark resident, broke through the front door of the first home to rescue animals before the firefighters arrived.
A Go Fund Me page was set up by Southpark resident Jan Baer to help the families of the fires. The campaign ends on June 30 and has a $5,000 goal. Click here to donate.
Jan also collected gift baskets from residents to present to Littleton Fire Rescue in recognition of their job well done.
