– Raton Fire and Emergency Services were called to an early morning fire Monday, Memorial Day, in the 400 block of Savage.

Captain Anthony Burke said the call came in about 2:40 am Monday morning and by the time fire fighters arrived on scene at 432 Savage Avenue, only a couple of blocks from the station, the house was fully involved. All three of the home’s occupant made it out of the house and were accounted for by fire fighters.

The home belongs to Albert and Ester Garcia, their son was staying with them at the time of the fire. The house is considered a total loss as the floor has started to fall in. The west wall is bowed in and the east wall is bowed out making the structure unsafe.

Since the house was fully involved an ignition point has yet to be determined. The cause of the fire is still under investigation as of Monday afternoon.

 

The call came in about 2:40 am Monday morning but the time the Raton Fire Department arrived the house was fully involved.
