Fire at Palisades Parkway Police HQ

Thursday, March 26th, 2020, 2:50 pm

Shortly before noon on January 1, 2020, the Alpine Fire Department was dispatched to the Palisade Interstate Parkway Police Headquarters and Park Commission Offices for a reported smoke condition in the police chief’s office. The first officer arrived and requested a mutual aid second alarm. Police advised there were guns and ammo still in the building, which they were trying to remove. At this point command was notified that there was also a water pressure issue at the closest hydrant. Command requested a third alarm. Due to the age of the building and the low water pressure, a fourth alarm was requested. The fire was quickly extinguished but, because of the age of the two buildings, extensive overhaul was required. Numerous agencies responded.
