He and others rushed toward the burning building to see if there was anything they could do to help.

“When I was running toward the fire it just — it didn’t blow up, but just the whole thing got out of hand,” he said.

Paramedics took seven people to the hospital, including one firefighter from the Cunningham Fire Protection District and four Arapahoe County deputies involved in evacuating the building.

The five emergency responders were treated and released. So far there’s no word on the condition of the two other people who were taken to the hospital, but all seven were treated for smoke inhalation and are expected to be okay.

Officials with the American Red Cross are assisting residents who were displaced by the fire.
