Fire damages Hunter Creek unit

Aspen Volunteer Fire Department personnel extinguished a fire at a second-floor unit in Building 9 of the Hunter Creek Condominiums on Monday afternoon.

Deputy Fire Chief Pete Voorhees said the fire was contained to the single unit. A report of smoke coming from the unit’s outside window was dispatched at 2:08 p.m. Voorhees said the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Twenty firefighters, two engines and a ladder truck responded to the incident, he said. They were on the scene for a little more than an hour, dousing the flames with a small amount of water.

No injuries occurred, Voorhees added.
