Early Morning Fire Damages Eagle River Home

At 1:14 A.M., AFD received a 911 call reporting a residential structure fire on Copper Mountain Circle in Eagle River. First arriving units found active fire to the ground floor entryway extending up to the second floor to the eves and the roof. The four adult occupants awoke to an activated smoke detector and exited the structure ahead of AFDs arrival. 

The fire was called under control after forty minutes and is under investigation. There was extensive fire damage to the second story, attic and roof. The Red Cross was notified for assistance to the occupants. No civilian or firefighter injuries were reported. 

The AFD reminds the public that funtioning smoke and carbon monoxide detectors do save lives.
