Geddes Avenue Electrical Fire
At 10:18 a.m. on Monday, February 27, 2023, Local members responded to a reported electrical fire at the Lyra Apartments, located at 9641 E. Geddes Ave. in Centennial. A boring operation was in progress near the building when equipment struck a secondary electrical supply line. Thankfully no electrocution or injuries occurred, but an interior electrical utility room filled with smoke. Members investigated the problem with a dry chemical fire extinguisher and advanced a hose line inside in case fire extended into the structure.
