CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) – Firefighters are trying to determine the cause of a stubborn fire at a Centennial home that has displaced the family who lives there.
The fire started in the kitchen early Monday evening on the 5111 block of South Olathe Circle. Crews put it out, but then several hours later — at approximately 9 p.m. — it flared up again spreading to the attic and through the roof.READ MORE: 'Step In The Right Direction': Black Denver Activist Cautiously Optimistic Following Chauvin Verdicts

Cunningham Fire Chief Jerry Rhodes told CBS4 a crew from Arapahoe Rescue Patrol kept an eye on the house overnight because with the frigid temperatures it was a bad idea to leave a fire engine there.
“With the freezing conditions it doesn’t do a lot of good to leave a fire truck sitting here only to turn into a popsicle and be unusable, to be an ice monument for the other fire trucks to have to work around,” Rhodes said.MORE NEWS: Mass Vaccination Sites In Colorado Now Open To Walk-Ups: 'No More Excuses'
