Aurora apartment fire displaces dozens


Brandon Johansson, Staff Writer

An apartment fire forced dozens of people from their homes early Saturday morning.
According to the Red Cross Mile High Chapter, the fire started around 12:45 a.m. in a building at 1509 S. Galena Way.
In all, 22 units were evacuated, the Red Cross said.
Residents forced from their homes can stay at Aurora Central High School. The Red Cross started a shelter at the school Friday for residents of five Paris Street apartment buildings forced to leave because of a booby-trapped apartment nearby. Police said they are trying to clear that apartment this morning after Century 16 movie theater shooter James Holmes rigged it with booby traps before Friday’s deadly theater shootings.
