Fire burns condos in Grand Lake

Firefighters, emergency medical teams, and Grand County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Shoreline Landing Condos in Grand Lake Friday morning after receiving a call from residents who woke around 5:30 a.m. to the smell of smoke.

Fire had engulfed units 9 and 10 of the condo complex, on the south shore of Shadow Mountain Reservoir. The condo complex is believed to be occupied mostly by second home owners away for the winter. No one is believed to have been hurt or injured.

By 10 a.m., the blaze had spread to the flanking units 7, 8 and 11 and additional crews were called in.

Members of the Emergency Medical Service and Office of Emergency Management were also on hand. Crews from the Grand Lake Fire Protection District, East Grand Fire Protection District No. 4, Grand Fire Protection District No. 1/Granby, and the Hot Sulphur Springs Fire Department were able to declare the fire under control by 12:15 p.m. The cause of the fire is yet unknown.
