At 6:43 p.m., Saturday, July 11, Wellington Fire and Poudre Fire Authority (PFA) were dispatched to a 911 call for a house on fire near Sumner St. and Burnside Lane, in Wellington. Prior to arriving on scene PFA Battalion 1 saw a large plume of black smoke from I-25 and Mulberry, in Fort Collins. When he arrived on scene, he saw the garage and second story of the house fully engulfed in flames with fire spreading to a neighboring home. Firefighters were able to quickly stop the spread to the neighboring home and focused on attacking the fire on the first home from the outside. Using an aerial master stream from above and hose lines from the ground, firefighters with Wellington and PFA were able to put a knock on the fire and prevent it from spreading to any other nearby homes. Crews with Wellington Fire remained on scene overnight to monitor for any hotspots and flare-ups.
