BRIDGEPORT -- Just before midnight Wednesday, fire crews from the Verde Valley Fire District were dispatched to Bridle Path Lane in Bridgeport for an active fire in a structure. While crews were approaching the property, they could see large flames and heavy smoke pouring off a fire in a garage. The Verde Valley firefighters called for additional help and more crews sent from Cottonwood Fire, the Clarkdale Fire and the Sedona Fire District as well as Verde Valley Ambulance.

When crews arrived on scene they found a detached garage behind the residence fully engulfed in flames. They were able to quickly knock down the flames and got the fire under control. A 6 to 8 foot wide hole was cut into a wooden privacy fence so fire crews could get to the rear of the structure.

A total of 12 units converged on the fire, which was out in 20 minutes.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

With the cold weather, it is important to remember to make sure that space heaters are turned off when you leave the area. Never stack anything on top of the heaters and to make sure no flammables are around the heater when it is used.
