DENVER — One man was rescued and two women escaped from a burning home early Thursday morning in northwest Denver.
The fire was first reported about 12:20 a.m. in the 3800 block of North Zuni Street.
Fire crews said there was heavy smoke coming from the home and two women in the front yard when they arrived on the scene.
A man who was trapped in the back of the house had to be rescued by fire crews. He was not injured.
“There were seven or eight fire trucks,” neighbor Frank Skora said. “They had fire firefighters and an ambulance across he way. They were taking someone away when I got here.”
The two women were taken to a local hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Firefighters said the fire was in the kitchen, then spread into the attic. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
