A Very Windy Night Leads to a Big Fire in Page

The Page Fire department, along with the Page Police department, were very busy early Saturday morning because of a fire that involved four modular homes. The fire, which started between 2:30 and 3:00 a.m., involved homes on Juniper Ave. and Cypress Ave., west of Colorado St., and just a block from Page Municipal Airport.

We know of no injuries, but we have not received a press release yet from the Page Fire Department.  We did hear from neighbors that one family lost their female cat and at least one kitten in the fire.

A next-door neighbor to one of the torched homes said there were seven people in his home when they were alerted of the blaze. He went on to say they simply all left the home, grabbing nothing on the way out.

He called the whole situation, “pretty scary.”

Rebecca Wilkinson lives on Aero Ave, nearby. She told us you could see flames from her home.

“I thought the whole block was on fire,” she said.

Neighbors told us that when police officers arrived, they went from door-to-door, waking people up and telling them to get out of their homes. With the high wind, there was no telling what the fire was going to do.
