City Assistance Continues in Wake of Southview Place II Fire

Littleton Fire Rescue (LFR) investigators, emergency managers, administrative staff and building officials continue to work with the owner and contractors involved in the restoration of the Southview Place II apartment building, 5820 South Windermere Street, following the April 6 fire.

“Our number one priority is to ensure that life safety issues are addressed as the building is repaired,” said LFR Fire Marshall Tim Stover. “Certain parts of the building will need to be upgraded to comply with the International Building and Fire Codes,” he said.

Aging Well Resource Center Manager Kay Wilmesher is utilizing her resources in the senior community to provide assistance. LFR Emergency Manager Jim Olsen has worked closely with other emergency agencies and community partners since the evacuation began.

Less than 48 hours after the fire, the city’s building division staff issued building permits for the renovation. “We will continue to work with the contractor to ensure that permits and inspections are done as quickly as possible,” said Chief Building Official Steve Hinkley.

Mayor Bruce Beckman said, “This community has come together in every way possible to help the residents affected by this fire. I want to thank everyone involved in helping with this difficult situation. Gratefully, no lives were lost but we know this fire has turned the lives of the Southview II residents upside down. We look forward to welcoming them back when the renovation is complete.”

The resource center at the Life Center, 5804 South Datura Street, will remain open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Wednesday, April 27. Residents can meet with caseworkers to help with their immediate needs and long term recovery. Donations of food, grocery gift cards, rental housing and more are still being accepted. Call 1-800-REDCROSS if you can help.

The investigation into the fire is still underway but arson is not believed to be a factor.
