Camp Verde firefighters, with assistance from the Montezuma Rimrock and Verde Valley fire districts, worked for more than an hour Monday, Oct. 20, to put out a fire that destroyed much of a two-story home on Butler Lane.

The call went out around 10:30 a.m. after the owner arrived to find her house going up in flames, Barbara Rice, spokesperson for the Camp Verde Fire District, said.

The fire started near the top of the house, Rice said, and spread quickly. The owner was able to save her dogs and cats, but two birds were lost in the blaze.

Crews remained on the scene well into the evening fighting occasional flare ups. The cause of the fire is unknown and still under investigation, Rice said.

Camp Verde fire crews also responded to a fire at a mobile home on Mockingbird Lane around 3:15 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24. The residents were awake at the time and were able to evacuate everyone, including children.
“It could have been pretty bad,” Rice said.
