Local fire units respond to two structure fires
TUSAYAN, Ariz. — During the week of Sept. 20, Tusayan Fire District (TFD), Grand Canyon National Park fire units and High Country Fire Rescue of Williams responded to two separate structure fires in the Grand Canyon area.
The first incident occurred at Grand Canyon Junction Sept. 21, and was attended by High Country Fire Rescue and TFD.
TFD Chief Greg Brush described the structure, which thoroughly burned, as a camper trailer residence.
According to Brush, mobile homes and RVs “typically go in less than 15 minutes.”
“That’s why we highly recommend fire and carbon monoxide alarms and tested fire extinguishers,” Brush said.
The second incident, attended by TFD and Grand Canyon National Park, occurred in Grand Canyon Village at a single unit family home Sept. 22.
Brush said that while he could not comment on injuries because of HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996), there were no deaths at either location.
