Burr House Fire – 20,000 sq ft Re-union House Fire

May 7th 2015 approximately 6:20 am the Garden City Fire District was paged out for a structure fire with reported smoke and flame evident.

GCFD first responders found a large under construction structure that was about 2 weeks from having construction completed and it’s first reunion group use the facility.  the structure was unoccupied at the time GCFD first arrived on the seen. Due to construction not being complete the smoke/fire detection systems were not yet functioning so no alarm was sounded.

GCFD was automatically assisted by Laketown, Randolph and Woodruff fire departments.  Within a couple hours further assistance would come from North Logan and Smithfield fire departments.

Initial responders found the ceilings in two areas of the basement were already collapsing so personnel initiated defensive procedures in an attempt to control the fire.




Cause of fire was undetermined due to extensive damage.
