Fire Destroys Orchard Mesa Abandoned Home

A fire atop Orchard Mesa guts an abandoned home.

The fire was reported around 8:00 p.m. Sunday night, with both the Grand Junction and Land's End Fire Department's showing up to the scene.

The home was fully engulfed when first responders arrived and because of water supply, fire fighters did not enter the structure, but fought the blaze defensively.

No other structures surrounding the home were threatened and at this point, investigators are unsure how the fire was sparked.

The damage is reported to be between 20 and 40-thousand dollars.
