DENVER (CBS4)– Everyone inside an apartment building in north Denver escaped a fire overnight. The fire broke out about 1:30 a.m. at the apartments located at 37th and North Marion Street.
When firefighters arrived they found the building completely engulfed in flames.
It took them nearly four hours to get that fire completely extinguished.
Copter4 flew over the fire which showed the second floor of the building collapsed from the fire damage. Several interior walls also collapsed.
Firefighters had to fight the fire from outside when it became to dangerous to be inside the building.
There are six to eight apartments located in the building.
No one was hurt in the fire.
What caused that fire is being investigated. It could be a difficult investigation because the structure is unsafe and a crew will likely have to remove the roof before investigators are allowed inside.
