Kingman, GV, NACFD team up to douse fire

Golden Valley firefighter Cody Wood fights a stubborn house fire Saturday.

GOLDEN VALLEY - Firefighters from three departments played a role in battling a stubborn house fire in Golden Valley Saturday afternoon.

The home on Safari Drive in the Walnut Creek neighborhood caught fire sometime after noon and quickly spread throughout the home and into the attic, according to department photographer Butch Meriwether.

After being apprised of the fire's intensity and with Golden Valley firefighters from each of the district's three stations already on scene, Golden Valley Fire Chief Tom O'Donohue called on mutual aid from the Kingman Fire Department and the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District.

Kingman sent four firefighters to join the nine from Golden Valley, along with apparatus. The Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District sent two firefighters and apparatus to the Golden Valley District's station 11, where they covered for Golden Valley firefighters.

The home was lost in the fire, but firefighters were able to keep it from reaching a detached garage.

Two small dogs were rescued and the elderly couple who live there were not present when the fire broke out.

No injuries were reported. The cause and origin of the fire are under investigation.
