Youngfield Construction Fire Still Under Investigation

Blaze causes millions in damages

Posted

Eight days after a fire destroyed part of the Applewood Village luxury townhome project, the cause of the fire is still under investigation, according to Ronda Scholting, spokesperson for West Metro Fire Rescue. 

WMFR responded to the fire in the early morning hours of Nov. 15, gaining control of the blaze within 45 minutes of arriving on scene. Arvada Fire Protection District assisted in the effort to combat the fire.

At least three units under construction were destroyed, with an estimated $2 million in damage sustained. 

The fire was so hot that it melted shutters on a house across the street, according to WMFR. 

The townhomes, originally scheduled to be completed in 2021, are billed as an urban community development of gorgeous townhome/villas and “a thoughtfully planned community within a community.”

Information on the listing agent’s website says the units will offer private rooftop decks, foothill views and electric car charging stations in garages. 

Thirty-one units were originally planned for the development with pre-construction pricing for the first phase of development ranging between $569,000 and $614,000.
