Boulder Fire Rescue crews responded to a fire at 2805 Sundown Lane, unit 112, at the Gold Run Condominium complex at 11:23 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20. Four engines and the ladder truck with 18 firefighters and two fire chiefs were on scene. The last engine cleared at 2 p.m.
The resident of a neighboring unit called 9-1-1 at 11:20 a.m. to report an odor of smoke and the sound of a smoke alarm in an adjacent apartment. Neighbors evacuated, and no injuries were reported to residents or firefighters.
The damaged unit was occupied by two people who were not at home at the time of the fire. The fire was contained to one unit of the multi-unit wooden structure. Damage is estimated to be approximately $50,000. The apartment is uninhabitable at this time.
One cat was rescued and resuscitated using a pet CPR mask and then transported to the Humane Society for treatment. The masks were donated to the department a couple of years ago by two young girls who sold jewelry to raise money so they could purchase and provide crews with the specialized animal equipment.
Fire Marshal David Lowrey said the fire appears to be accidental in nature.
