DENVER — Firefighters knocked down a fire that started in the basement of a home near Denver Country Club on Monday morning that was attributed to a hash oil operation.

The Denver Fire Department said the fire at 40 N. Clarkson St. was out in about 10 minutes and there were no injures.

Arson investigators were called to the scene to investigate the cause, which DFD said was because of a hash oil operation.

DFD says it’s the eighth known hash oil operation fire it has responded to and it suspects seven other hash oil fires but have yet to confirm them.
