Deck collapses with hot tub in Redcliff
Firefighters found that a two-level residential deck had collapsed with a six-person hot tub. The hot tub and decks had fallen approximately 30 feet down a creek side hill. A natural gas line feeding a barbecue was also sheared away from the exterior of the residence in the collapse and was leaking gas. Firefighters were forced to shut-off the main gas line to the entire duplex.
It was discovered that both decks had approximately 10-12 inches of ice and snow accumulation.
Firefighters were informed that there was no one home and the occupants were out of town until the end of the month.
