Nearly 20 Lincoln County firefighters responded to an outbuilding blaze Saturday afternoon in Denver, an incident that the Fire Marshal’s Office deemed accidental in nature, fire officials said.
The incident occurred just after noon on Wildwood Trail in Denver and resulted in a total loss of the outbuilding and its contents, according to a Denver Fire Department press release.
Crews from agencies in Pumpkin Center and East Lincoln also responded to the scene to assist Denver’s department. A total of 18 firefighters were on-hand to extinguish the flames 16 minutes after the first engine arrived at the property, the release said.
In addition, Lincoln County Emergency Medical Services and officials with the Fire Marshal’s Office responded to the site.
EMS transported the owner to Carolinas Medical Center-Lincoln following the fire for a medical issue, the release said, but the individual was not injured in connection with the incident.
