Evergreen Fire/Rescue responded to three house fires in a recent 24-hour period, with one home destroyed by the flames.

Flames were reported at a home in the 1200 block of Lodgepole Drive just after midnight Dec. 6, and firefighters responded in 33 minutes to find the structure fully involved, Evergreen Fire Chief Mike Weege said.

"It was really smoky, kind of crazy," said neighbor Dakota Farrello, who added that he saw flames shooting 30 feet into the air. Farrello also said he heard four explosions, and Weege said there were propane tanks on the property.
