Fire at 438 Mountain Laurel Ct.
Contact : Laura Gentry


On Wednesday, July 5th at 8:33:44 AM Mountain View Communications received a 911 call reporting a fire in the garage of a fourplex located at 438 Mountain Laurel Ct.

Units were dispatched at 8:34:01 AM. Fire Units arrived on scene within 2 minutes at 8:36:54 AM to find the fire had spread from the garage to the second floor living space and the attic. Units attacked the fire from the interior and went into the attic to prevent extension to the uninvolved units. A second alarm was called in at 8:51 AM to address the heavy fire in the attic and the roof collapse.

Mountain View Fire’s aggressive attack of this fire enabled the three surrounding units in the fourplex to be saved. There were no injuries in this incident. The resident reports that the fire started in a coffee roasting machine in the garage. The precise cause of the fire is currently being investigated.
