IMG_0119 (002)

Avon, CO – At approximately 11:39 a.m. today, Vail Dispatch received a report of a fire at the A Building of Beaver Bench Condominiums, located at 414 W Beaver Creek Boulevard in Avon. Several Avon police officers were on scene in seconds as they were at an event at Nottingham Lake when the fire broke out. An evacuation of the condominium complex took place and several barbeques and propane tanks were removed from the immediate vicinity of the fire. Eagle River Fire Protection District (ERFPD) units arrived minutes later and were subsequently assisted by personnel from the Vail Fire Department and the Greater Eagle Fire Protection District. Personnel from Eagle County Paramedic Services, Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Vail Valley Salvation Army, and the American Red Cross were also on hand to assist during the incident. 

There are no reported injuries to humans or animals. 

Many brave actions were undertaken by citizens and public safety personnel to suppress the fire. The fire is currently suppressed and ERFPD units are conducting clean-up operations to ensure there are no remaining fire hot spots in the building. Avon PD, ERFPD, Vail Valley Salvation Army and the American Red Cross are in the process of updating residents and guests who have been immediately affected by this incident. The American Red Cross has organized alternative accommodation for those who require it. The ERFPD fire marshal and Avon PD are conducting a joint investigation into the cause of the fire. At this time, indications suggest that the cause of the fire was kitchen-related. 

The Town of Avon and Avon PD greatly appreciate the amazing community response to this incident.
