Central Arizona Fire and Medical crews responded to a large structure fire early Monday in Prescott Valley. The fire was reported at around 1:15 a.m. at Legado Luxury Apartments at 3128 Main Street, which is on the south side of Florentine Road at Main Street. The 685-thousand square foot building, and adjacent parking structure, was under construction at the time the fire started. When the first crews arrived, the structure was fully engulfed in flames and is a complete loss. The estimated value of loss to the structure is $60-million. Law enforcement evacuated four buildings at Talking Glass Apartments due to the fire. There are no reported injuries and the incident is under investigation.

Fain Signature Group is the company that was building the complex. They released a statement Monday afternoon:

Fain Signature Group’s multifamily apartment project was approximately 50% complete. The concrete garage and 329 apartment units under construction represent an estimated loss of 685,000 square feet of building.

“At this time, our focus is the health and safety of our first responders, residents, and business owners in the immediate area. We are working closely with CAFMA (Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority), Prescott Valley Police Department, and YCSO (Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office) to ensure they have all the information they need to determine the cause of the fire currently under investigation. In gratitude, we can’t say enough about the effort, risk, and professionalism of CAFMA, Prescott Valley Police Department, YCSO, and supporting agencies in the region who successfully prevented the fire from spreading to adjacent structures. We are following the lead of CAFMA and Prescott Valley Police Department at this time to ensure the site is secured as firefighting and public safety efforts continue to take place. In addition, our hearts go out to over 200 workers, trades, and professionals that have been impacted by this loss in these challenging economic times,” says Brad Fain, President and CEO of Fain Signature Group.
