1 dead in Aurora apartment fire

AURORA, Colorado ” One person is dead after an early-morning fire at an apartment complex in Aurora.

Fire Department Capt. Mark Turley says the fire broke out at the Tiara Apartments about 1 a.m. Friday. He says the fire was nearly out by the time a fire crew arrived on the scene.

Turley says a fire that had been smoldering heated up and the smoke tripped an alarm. The blaze was put out with a watering can.

A sign on the outside of the apartment building identifies the complex as a “Handicapped and Senior Living” facility.

The victim was already dead by the time firefighters found the person.

No other injuries were reported.

The name of the victim has not been released.
