Northwest Fire crews were called to a house fire on the northwest side Saturday afternoon. Fire crews were alerted by a neighbor who heard the sounds of smoke alarms going off. 

The neighbor went to the home and discovered smoke visible inside the home and called 911.

In all, three engines, a rescue company, and several support units totaling 19 firefighters initiated an interior search for victims and found none. The fire was brought under control within eight minutes of their arrival.

The homeowner arrived back at the scene to find fire companies still working to extinguish hot spots.

A 53 year-old man who lives at the home alone will be displaced from the residence due to the fire and smoke damage. The Northwest Fire’s Community Assistance Program will assist him with relocation and needs after the fire.

Fire cause investigators from Northwest Fire were at the scene and the investigation into the cause of the fire is still underway. Damages have been estimated to be approximately $35,000.

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
