Aspen building fire under investigation

Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – Aspen authorities are looking into the cause of a Saturday morning structure fire.

At approximately 9:30 a.m. Aspen firefighters and police responded to 220 W. Main St., an apartment and commercial building that’s home to a travel agency, dentist office and security firm, among other businesses. No one was hurt in the fire and the building sustained smoke damage only, said Mike Tracey, an investigator with the Aspen Police Department.

Tracey said the building would be habitable by Saturday afternoon. No one was injured, he said.

“It just needed to get aired out,” he said.

Tracey said evidence inside the building indicates that “suspicious circumstances” could have been at play.

“It’s just the way the fire started,” he said.
