2 dead after house fire in Arvada

Two people who were transported to the hospital died from injuries sustained in the fire. Two others who were unaccounted after the fire have been located.

ARVADA, Colo. — Two people who were initially unaccounted for after a fatal house fire in Arvada have been found safe, according to fire crews at the scene.

The fire started at about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday in a home near West 71st Avenue and Swadley Circle, according to Amber Jones with Arvada Fire Protection District. That's near Simms Street and West 72nd Avenue.

The home was fully involved when crews arrived on scene, Jones said.

Three people were transported to the hospital and two of those people later died, fire officials said.

"I believe that [the other victim is] doing well," said Amber Jones, spokesperson for Arvada Fire Protection District.

Two dogs also survived the fire, one of which had to be transported to a local vet, according to Jones.

Multiple animals died in the fire, but Jones did not have an accurate count early Wednesday morning as crews were still on scene.

Crews have put out the fire and have started their investigation, according to a tweet from Arvada Fire Protection District.
