Firefighters say so far it looks like some cooking was left unattended.

“And with the stove being on there were some pizza boxes adjacent to the stove that they believe caught fire. They tried to extinguish it, weren’t able to and then they flooded the apartment,” Castle Rock Fire Chief Art Morales said.

Fire investigators are working on confirming the cause of the fire.

The American Red Cross is helping people who live in the building.
