Carbondale, Colo. – On July 7, 2023, at approximately 7:26 p.m., Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District was dispatched to 150 Midland Loop (Aspen Glen Subdivision) for a report of a structure fire.
Upon arrival, crews found a single-family structure that was under construction with smoke and flames coming out of the front and side of the residence.
