Westminster apartment building deemed uninhabitable after fire damages 3 floors

Investigators determined the fire was set intentionally.

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — An apartment complex in Westminster is uninhabitable after it was heavily damaged during a fire Sept. 24.

The fire started around 2:15 p.m. at the Park Place Apartments at 9017 N. Federal Blvd. It was under control just before 3:30 p.m., according to the Westminster Fire Department (WFD).

No one was injured, but WFD said all three floors of the building were affected by the fire. 

Crews finished work putting out hot spots that evening, allowing them to end the closure of the southbound lanes of Federal Boulevard from 92nd Avenue to 88th Avenue. There was heavy traffic reported earlier when the lanes were closed. 

The fire department said there were more than 20 fire units on the scene from multiple jurisdictions.

There are 24 apartments in the building, WPD said.
