Prescott Valley – Legovo Fire

In the early morning hours of April 1st, the Legado apartment complex at the corner of Florentine Road and Main Street caught fire. The wooden structure, currently under construction, comprised of about 350,000 square feet, burned quickly, with the flames burning about 150 feet in the air.  Roads were closed and the residents in the nearby apartment buildings were evacuated. While the cause of the fire is currently under investigation, this tragedy did not involve the loss of human life. The estimated today loss from a financial standpoint is approximately sixty million dollars.

The Prescott Valley Police reached out to neighboring police, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Yavapai County Emergency Management and fire agencies for assistance and the response was immediate. In these dire circumstances, our government agencies and local businesses showcased what is so amazing about living in Prescott Valley. Local hotels offered rooms if anyone was displaced. People worked together to make sure everyone was evacuated in the apartments. Local ambulances stepped up to aid those who could not walk out on their own. An evacuation center was set up for displaced people at Bradshaw Mountain High School East campus located at 6411 Robert Rd. in Prescott Valley. It was a seamless operation.

The Prescott Valley Police Department would like to thank those agencies who came out to help with this incident, and to thank the local businesses who saw the local need and were quick to lend a hand. We are truly blessed to live in and serve such an amazing community.
