1 dead after apartment fire in Aurora

Aurora Fire Rescue responded to a two-story multi-family residence on East Radcliff Place around 3:30 a.m. Friday.

AURORA, Colo. — One person died after being pulled from an apartment fire in Aurora early Friday morning.

Firefighters with Aurora Fire Rescue (AFR) responded to a two-story multi-family residence in the 16300 block of East Radcliff Place around 3:30 a.m. Friday. That is just south of East Quincy Avenue between South Chambers Road and South Buckley Road.

Firefighters were met with heavy fire conditions inside the unit when they arrived, fire officials said.

By 5 a.m. the fire was under control, but there was still an "active" natural gas leak, AFR said in a tweet.

There is heavy damage to the floor on the second level of the residence, so firefighters are having to be extra cautious as they work the scene, the agency said.

There is no word on the cause of the fire at this point.
