One Dead in Columbia House Fire

One person is dead after a Columbia house fire that started just after midnight this Friday morning. Firefighters went to the 39-hundred block of Deerfoot Way and found a two-story residential structure with an attached garage. Fire was throughout the entire garage, and had spread into the house and attic above. During initial firefighting and search operations, crews were unable to locate any victims. While fire crews were investigating to ensure there were no areas of hidden fire remaining, one person was found deceased under debris. That person’s identity has yet to be determined.
