This morning firefighters from Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District (BMFPD) responded to the report of a structure on fire in the 100 block of Pineview Lane at approximately 3:00 a.m. Members from Boulder Rural Fire Department also responded to assist BMFPD with the blaze.

Upon arrival firefighters found flames on the ceiling which were brought under control using a fire extinguisher. Portions of the ceiling and roof had to be removed as the fire was spreading into those areas as well. The fire was contained to the living room, ceiling and roof of the immediate area.

Incident Commander and BMFPD Assistant Chief stated "the timeliness of the response is to be noted as our department is made up of volunteers who have other jobs. Their diligence and fast action was a major factor in the success of this incident and outcome. We also thank Boulder Rural Fire Department for their assistance with this incident."

Approximately twenty firefighters from both agencies were on hand during the incident and no injuries were reported. The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.

Our firefighters worked hard and safely to help extinguish the Olde Stage Fire, which threatened our homes and the neighborhood. Many residents and well-wishers have thanked us, and asked how they can help our department. The easiest way to help is to donate money. Our trucks, equipment and extensive training are all expensive. We’ve recently added a donate button to our home page to make donating even easier than before. Simply click on this button, and you can safely and securely make a donation, directly from our website. Your donation may help to reduce your tax burden, as we are non-profit. Notes of appreciation and encouragement are welcome and will be distributed to our firefighters.

If you’d like to donate more than $1000 or don’t wish to use the online system, please send a check payable to Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District to: 1905 Linden Drive, Boulder, CO 80304.

Please thank a firefighter when you see them.

- Chief John Benson, BMFPD
