At 12:20 PM the Grand Junction Fire Department responded to a fire in an apartment complex on the 500 block of 28 ½ Road. A neighbor reported hearing dogs barking inside the home and smoke visible through the windows. When GJFD crews arrived they quickly made entrance to the apartment and extinguished the flames. Crews work diligently to ensure the fire had not spread to the adjoining apartments or spread through the attic space. Three dogs died because of the fire. There are no other known injuries. The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.

Grand Junction Police responded to assist with scene safety and members of the Victim Services Unit of the GJPD and the American Red Cross responded to assist the two adults and three children displaced by the fire.
