DENVER — Four people were injured in a fire at an apartment building in Denver Saturday afternoon. 

The Denver Fire Department (DFD) said firefighters were called out just after 4 p.m. to the second alarm blaze at 630 S. Dayton St. That's located south of East Alameda Ave and west of Havana Street.

A spokesperson for DFD said the additional resources were needed because it was a significant fire with the potential to do a great deal of damage. About 70 firefighters were on scene in various roles.

Some people escaped the fire by jumping from the third floor, DFD said. 

Four people were injured in the incident, DFD said, and three of them were taken to the hospital. None of the injuries were life-threatening.  

The cause is under investigation. 

"A strong effort & quick extinguishment on an extremely hot day," DFD tweeted.

Temperatures reached a high of 97 degrees in Denver Saturday.
