The Loveland Fire Rescue Authority (LFRA) responded to a house fire in Loveland just before midnight last night as a Christmas Eve blaze forced a family to quickly evacuate.

According to a post from Loveland Fire, the house caught ablaze due to a wildland fire near Boedecker Lake. The family's two-story home was fully engulfed in flames when authorities arrived.

LFRA has reported that the entire family was able to escape the flames and is being supplied with temporary housing by Larimer County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) Victim Advocates.

While authorities were able to contain the fire last night (Dec. 24), it is reported that crews continued to work through the night and are expected to work through the day today to fully extinguish the fire.

At this time, it is unclear what the original cause of the fire is. LCSO and LFRA are working to investigate the fire to determine the cause.
