STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Firefighters with Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue responded to a structure fire at a commercial building in the Wildhorse development about 6 p.m. Sunday, according to Fire Chief Mel Stewart.

Stewart said the blaze appears to have originated on the fourth floor of a commercial building located at 1195 Bangtail Way and involved areas on the structure’s exterior roof, though he added the exact cause of the fire has not been determined and is under investigation.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze in fairly short order.

“One engine and two ambulances responded, and we were able to knock it down pretty quickly,” Stewart said.

According to Stewart, the building contains no residential units and is occupied by commercial offices and a restaurant.

“Obviously, the restaurant will be closed tomorrow (Monday), and the fire marshal will begin investigating the cause and working with the tenants.”

The West Routt Fire Protection District and the Oak Creek Fire Protection District also responded to the call.
