Scottsdale fire crews are investigating the origin of a fire that caused smoke and roof damage to a portion of the Boulders Resort in north Scottsdale this morning.
Fire crews responded to an alarm at 3:30 a.m. and when they arrived on the scene at 34631 N. Tom Darlington Drive, they saw smoke coming out of a unit in the Casitas area of the resort, according to Tiffani Nichols, Scottsdale fire spokeswoman.
The unit, which was occupied, was evacuated, but the total number of evacuations from the resort, located on the Carefree border, was not known as crews worked on the roof of the structure, Nichols said.
Twenty-five firefighters on the scene had the smoke extinguished in a matter of minutes, and no injuries were reported, Nichols said.
“The fire alarm helped get crews on the scene early on,” Nichols said. “This is a good reminder to use smoke alarms because they do work, and they do save lives.”
