CHLOE

Around 1 a.m. Saturday, the Denver Fire Department responded to a two alarm fire at 3450 South Poplar St. that forced the evacuation of residents on two floors of an apartment complex.

Multiple residents were rescued from their balconies. Three or more were sent to the hospital with injuries and about five were treated on site, 9News reported.

Crews quickly controlled the fire, but the Red Cross estimates at least seven residents have been displaced and will need housing assistance.

Denver Fire believes the fire started on the second floor of the condo complex. They are currently investigating the cause, ABC7 reported.
