Cedar Rapids Police Department Releases Footage from Inside Geneva Tower Fire

March 13, 2022

On Sunday, Feb 20, 2022, Cedar Rapids Police Officers and Firefighters battled the largest high-rise fire in City history. Body-worn cameras from several Cedar Rapids Police Officers captured moments of bravery, compassion and outstanding teamwork.

While police evacuated residents, firefighting teams were extinguishing the flames on floors 9-12 and with aerial units. Several area agencies - including the Linn County Sheriff's Office, Area Ambulance, American Red Cross, Salvation Army and multiple nearby fire departments - supported the effort directly or as backfill allowing Cedar Rapids units to send additional resources to the scene.

We are extremely proud of these efforts and offer our sincere thanks to all who helped. There are still residents in need at Geneva Tower. If you would like to donate financially to that effort, you can do so at www.affordablehousingnetwork.org/support/
