at 2 p.m. on saturday afternoon, south metro firefighters responded to a building fire at the parker funeral home, located at 10325 parkglenn way. when crews arrived they observed smoke showing from the attic and chimney structure; and the employees confirmed that everyone was safe and outside. an attack hose line was stretched inside and firefighters opened up the ceiling while other firefighters on the roof ventilated the heat and heavy smoke. although smoke was visible from the eaves of the entire building, firefighters prevented the fire from spreading beyond the area of origin. extensive overhaul was needed to locate and extinguish all of the hotspots and approximately 40 personnel operated on scene for nearly 3 hours. thankfully no one was injured and investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
