Fire destroys Sea Creek Drive home

November 19, 2018

BULLHEAD CITY — A structure fire Sunday afternoon in the 1700 block of Sea Creek Drive destroyed a home, according to the Bullhead City Fire Department.

First responders began arriving at the location around 1:40 p.m. — three engine crews and a medic crew with Battalion No. 7. Streets leading to the location were blocked quickly.

Strong wind gusts complicated the situation but firefighters were able to keep the blaze from jumping to neighboring structures, said Battalion Chief Josh Livermore.

“It’s pretty gutted,” he said about the home.

A black cloud of smoke wafted above the neighborhood and was visible throughout the city and Laughlin before the wind spread it out.

The National Weather Service predicted wind gusts of up to nearly 30 mph Sunday and early today.

No people were injured. The search was on during the afternoon for a Chihuahua believed to be owned by the residents, he said.

Neighbors allowed firefighters to use their garden hoses to rinse off the white foam used to extinguish such fires.

An investigator will be looking into the cause of the blaze, Livermore added.

Firefighters also were called to knock down a brush fire near the 1900 block of Riverside Drive at around 3:15 p.m.
