By Carol A. Clark

As fire burned under the floor, thick white smoke poured from the front windows and through the roof of a home at 4333-B Fairway Tuesday morning. The home’s occupant, Bobbie Logan, had already left for work and her two daughters for school.Off-duty Santa Fe Sheriff’s Deputy Julie York lives down the street and said she was driving by and noticed smoke coming from the side of the home.“I called it in and went to the front door to see if anyone was inside,” York said. “The door was hot. That’s when Los Alamos Police Lt. Scott Mills arrived and we went around to the rear of the home and kicked in the back door. We saw a dog lying in the kitchen and brought it outside but it was already dead.”Mills said they contacted Logan at her job. She confirmed no one was in the home.“We also called the school to make sure her daughters were in class,” Mills said.York called in the fire to the Consolidated Dispatch Center (CDC) at 11:22 a.m. and the first engines arrived on scene at 11:27 a.m., according to dispatch reports. The Los Alamos Fire Department threw everything they could at the fire in an effort to minimize damage.Four engines, a rescue unit and some 20 firefighters in masks connected to oxygen tanks carrying axes, chain saws and rip tools descended on the home, which is half of a duplex.
