GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The Grand Junction Fire Department had a busy night Monday, responding to fires involving a home and a shed at two different locations.

First, officials with the GJFD responded to a call at 549 Normandy Way and arrived to a home with an active fire inside the living room and kitchen. The crew forced entry into the house and extinguished the fire quickly.

The house was being remodeled at the time and was vacant, and no injuries were reported. However, it did sustain extensive heat and smoke damage throughout, and an initial damage estimate is $50,000.

Roughly four and a half hours later GJFD was dispatched to 310 South Redlands Road upon the report of a possible shed on fire. The first arriving crew found a medium-sized shed fully involved approximately 100 yards from the residence.

Crews extinguished the fire quickly, but it required extensive overhaul to do so. The shed was a total loss, estimated at $5,000.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
