DENVER — Denver Fire has put out a fire at a home for the second time in a month.

The home at 1480 S. Bellaire St. caught fire just before 6 a.m. Tuesday. The house was vacant and appeared to be under construction after the house caught fire Feb. 14.

There were no injuries. A dumpster also caught fire.

Arson investigators are on the scene, which is normal procedure.

In the February fire, a family of three was able to get out, but a family dog was lost. Two other dogs and a cat also escaped.

    House AND dumpster?
    Need to find the criminal who starts these fires.

    (Yes, sometimes plumbers soldering copper pipes catch nearby combustibles on fire. Are they still using copper pipes in new construction?)

    Original home had a working smoke alarm?
    If so, why was a dog allowed to die?

      Are they still using copper pipes in new construction?

      Rarely. They do use copper to hook up from the main water line but after it hits the foundation it’s all PVC/ABS
