Eric Hurst submitted the following account of a 2nd Alarm fire in a commercial building in Denver on June 29, 2009.
At 03:30 on June 29, 2009, Denver Firefighters were dispatched to 48th Avenue & Pecos Street for multiple reports of an explosion and fire. First arriving companies found heavy flames venting from the front windows of the DOLLAR$ CITY store. An extra Engine & Truck were requested followed quickly by a 2nd Alarm. A defensive strategy was used and the bowstring truss roof collapsed within 30 minutes. Four aerial master streams and two ground monitors were used to control the fire which took 90 minutes. There were no injuries, no damage to exposures and the fire was ruled arson.
