AURORA, Colo. — The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office has identified a boy who died after a townhome fire in Aurora early Wednesday as 6-year-old Kendrick Huguley.   

Aurora Fire Rescue (AFR) crews were called at about 12:30 a.m. to the fire in the 2000 block of South Paris Way. That's near South Peoria Street and East Jewell Avenue in the Village East neighborhood of Aurora.

The boy was rescued by firefighters with a ladder and was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injures, according to AFR.

Just before 4 a.m., AFR reported the fire was under control. Four residents were displaced from the townhome. The fire did not significantly impact adjacent units, according to AFR.

In an update Wednesday evening, AFR said the boy had died. The coroner's office is still investigating the cause and manner of his death.
